The method predicting lung age was originally proposed by Morris and Temple (1985). In their method, lung age was estimated by counting back the regression formula predicting normal value of FEV1. Since the normal value of FEV1 at a given age is not unique and exists within a certain range defined as 95% confidence interval, the backward value of lung age calculated with the original method includes statistical and physiological problems. Analyzing the problems related to the original method… CONTINUE READING
