The Global Lung Function Initiative (GLI) has collected respiratory function outcomes from researchers and health care professionals from around the world. To date, the GLI Network has produced reference equations for Spirometry and Transfer Factor for Carbon Monoxide. Current projects include reference equations for lung volumes.  Data collection for all lung function tests is ongoing, interested groups may submit additional data at any time.  In addition, the GLI database is available to researchers to conduct answer research questions.
