Explanation:
FEV = Forced Expiratory Volume
FVC = Forced Vital Capacity
VC = Vital Capacity

See:

Procedure Commonly Includes Vital capacity (VC); forced vital capacity (FVC); timed forced expiratory volumes, FEV0.5, FEV1, FEV3; forced expiratory flow between 25% and 75% of the FEV (FEF25%-75%); peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR or PF); total expiratory time in seconds
