  • *Patients with missing baseline data were excluded from relevant analyses.

  • †Defined as ≥10% decrease in per cent predicted FVC, ≥50 m decline in 6MWD or death.

  • ‡Hospitalisation in which the primary reason for admission was determined to be respiratory-related by a blinded clinical investigator.

  • 6MWD, 6-minute walk distance; IPF, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
