Pre- and posttraining measurements included PImax, PEmax, VE, maximal flow volume loops, peak inspiratory flow, peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), FVC, FEV1, and forced expiratory flow at 50 percent of FVC, pulmonary gas exchange, and a progressive incremental rowing exercise test [6].
Then, local physicians trained by pulmonologist Christopher Olopade, MD, of the University of Chicago, rigorously measured each patient's lung function using a spirometer with a focus on two standard lung-function tests: forced expiratory flow (FEV1, the amount of air a person can expel in one second) and forced vital capacity (FVC, the total volume of air exhaled after fully filling the lungs).
