hello guys, i just joined this forum. i thought i should post this..may be if anyone else wanna add something to list too. i thoght we can just mention PFTs for many diseases, as usmle focuses on lab value so much. we know usual restrictive and COPD..but some other ones i thought..may be might be useful.
i will post the topic..if u guys wanna add.

1. CF.

2. after a lobe resection..PFT

3. Pt with pul HTN and Pul Edema.

4. Chronic Asthma vs. acute asthma..any change if any?

i dont know the exact value..i am gonna try to figure this out..if u guys wanna help..really appreciate it too.
tnx. good luck.
