  1. Abbreviations: VC, vital capacity; IRV, inspiratory reserve volume; ERV, expiratory reserve volume; TV, tide volume; IC, inspiratory capacity; MVV, maximum voluntary ventilation; RR, respiratory rate; FVC, forced vital capacity; FEV1, forced expired volume in one second; MMEF, mean mid-expiratory flow; PEFR, peak expiratory flow rate; FEF, forced expiratory flow, which was taken respectively 25%, 50% and 75% of vital capacity. PEER/H, FEF25/H, FEF50/H, FEF75/H, body height standardized values of corresponding measurements. *: p < 0.05 in two sample t-test between groups.
