  1. *Part 1 of the two-part model involves modeling whether an individual has any physician visits or any days in bed due to lower respiratory infection. P values derived from the Wald statistic based on logistic regression results from Hapassoc. Decline in lung function status was included as a factor in the analysis.
  2. †Part 2 of the two-part model involves modeling the average number of physician visits or days in bed due to lower respiratory infection given that it is greater than zero. P values derived from the Wald statistic based on gamma regression results from Hapassoc. Decline in lung function status was included as a factor in the analysis.
  3. ‡Mean (SE).
  4. §Mean number of visits to a physician for lower respiratory infections per year.
  5. llMean number of days kept in bed for lower respiratory infections per year.
