Pulmonary Function Test Passing Scores?

So I had a PFT test done today. I had a chance to look at my results, and the nurse doing the test said I did fantastic.. The scores were all at 100% or higher except for the very bottom number being 62%, I have no clue what the lowest 62% value means, nor the numbers higher then 100% lol I find out friday.. But I'm anxious to join the military and want to know if I did good or not! Thanks!

Answer

Normal values are based upon your age, height, ethnicity, and **. Normal results are expressed as a percentage. A value is usually considered abnormal if it is less than 80% of your predicted value.

Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.
