These are definitely abnormal results.  Some of the values may also be internally inconsistent.  There appear to be features of both restriction and obstruction, the two main categories of lung function abnormality.

The best advice I can provide is that you discuss these results with your lung specialist, in the context of Chest X-ray and CT of the lungs findings, smoking history, occupational history etc.

Good luck
