What Does Fev1 Represent What Is Considered To Be A Good Fev1 Level
Lung function: The fev1 stands for forced expiratory volume in the 1st second of a lung function test. It gives a picture of how fast the air is able to be expelled from the airways. A "normal" number is really dependent on multiple factors, but generally >80% predicted is acceptable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bronchodilators: Medications that help open up the airways when treating diseases such as asthma or COPD are available with a few different mechanisms of action. It depends whether the person is acutely sick on top of underlying lung disease or if it's stable underlying lung disease. Most of these medications are meant to slow further decline of FEV1. ...Read more

Hard to Say: Only knowing your FEV1/FVC ratio does not give enough information to answer your question. Spiriva is typically used for COPD or emphysema or added to other medications for asthma. I would not ignore what your doctor told you and if you are unsure about using a medication you should always discuss that with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Test interpretation: This test should be interpreted in the context of your history. Since you have normal airflow in the larger airways, I would recommend checking the smaller airway function values, and repeat testing. There is a range of normal values, and your own best value may be determined upon repeat testing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
