Forced Vital Capacity
Forced Expiratory Volume1
(PFT's) Forced Vital Capacity and Forced Expiratory Volume are Decreased for patients with RLD and COPD. Each disease has a specific reason for why this occurs?

FEV/FVC is _____ or _____ in RLD. Why?
FEV/FVC is _____ in COPD. Why?
- -normal or increased for RLD because the TLC is smaller and the amount expired in the 1st second may be a greater proportion than the TLC
