The purpose of this study was to determine the prognostic value of the postbronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1)/forced(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic capacity of the AL classifications based on z-score or percentage predicted in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary(More)
