• Hi all, I finally got a very short report of my Pulmonary Function Test back after being tested June 5.  It reads :   Baseline Spirometry is within normal limits. There is a significant decrease in flow rates in the supine position suggesting decreased muscle strength.

    The Maximal Inspiratory pressure is within normal limits, but the maximal expiratory pressure is markedly decreased.  This again, suggests significant musculoskeletal difficulty with decreased recoil strength of the ribcage or abnormal movement of the diaphragm.  Further assessment would be of benefit…

    Thoughts on this?

     

    Thanks

     

     

     

    • I agree with Amanda – – get your doctor on the phone for an explanation. I know it may be difficult to get them on the line. But be persistent. Remember, the doctor works for you.
