Software for CF FEV1 percentiles

Two kinds of software tools for conversion between raw FEV1 and percentiles of FEV1 among patients with cystic fibrosis are available for download from this page:

  1. A command-line Windows executable which calculates the percentile for a single patient;
  2. A collection of functions written in R, an open source statistical package. These functions can handle large datasets.

Both also handle CF height percentiles.

Neither height nor FEV1 equations have been implemented in Excel or SAS as yet.

Command-line tool for Windows

This is the program that works behind the web conversion tool. It converts FEV1 and height into percentiles and vice versa, for a single patient at a time.

R functions

This is a collection of functions written in R, which convert FEV1 and height into percentiles and vice versa for a whole data set. It requires an installation of R on your computer (available for download here). Datasets can be exported from almost any other software in the comma separated format, imported into R to calculate the percentiles and exported again through the same format.
