There was also a significant negative correlation of FVC% and FEF25-75%
with the level of ECO and so ECO level increased with decrease in % FVC and %FEF25-75%

The mean values of pulmonary function parameters, FVC, FEV1, FEF25-75%
, FEV1/FVC, PEFR in carpet weavers were seen to be significantly lowered as compared to controls.
For example, the FEF25-75%
helps distinguish healthy smokers from healthy nonsmokers in large groups of individuals; this suggests it could be an early marker of small airways disease.
A common example is the use of the FEF25-75%
to diagnose small airways disease in individuals.
