Global Lung Function Initiative

About
The Global Lungs Initiative (GLI) equations are the first global multi-ethnic reference equations for spirometry that span all-ages. These are the result of unprecedented, unselfish and professional international cooperation endorsed by five international societies. Briefly, data from 74,187 healthy non-smokers (57.1% females) aged 3-95 years were used to derive multi-ethnic reference equations using modern statistical methods, including development of age dependent lower limits of normal.
About  Show

The GLI team have developed educational materials to help inform health professionals and patients about the GLI equations, and what they can expect when pulmonary function laboratories switch to using the GLI.
