Can only guess: That the quality was fair likely meaning that your efforts were not sufficient in performing the test.
Dr. Amrita Dosanjh
Pediatric Pulmonology 36 years experience
Some thoughts: It depends on the system used, but I would suggest repeating your testing and asking the pulmonary technician about the notations.
