Interpreting results with GLI-2012 using Z-score and LLN

In the four years that it took the Global Lung Function Initiative (GLI) to finish its mission, with the support of six large international respiratory societies, a collaborative network was established that spanned the world.

The network included clinicians, researchers, technicians, IT engineers and manufacturers. The objective was to derive reference equations for spirometry that covered as many ethnic groups as possible, and an age range from pre-school children to old age.
