rspiro: Implementation of Spirometry Equations

Implementation of various spirometry equations in R, currently the GLI-2012 (Global Lung Initiative; Quanjer et al. 2012 <doi:10.1183/09031936.00080312>) and the NHANES3 (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey; Hankinson et al. 1999 <doi:10.1164/ajrccm.159.1.9712108>) equations. Contains user-friendly functions to calculate predicted and LLN (Lower Limit of Normal) values for different spirometric parameters such as FEV1 (Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second), FVC (Forced Vital Capacity), etc, and to convert absolute spirometry measurements to percent (%) predicted and z-scores.
