Spirometry is a clinical tool used to assess, diagnose, monitor, and characterize the degree of abnormality of lung function. It can be performed in a variety of clinical settings and for a variety of clinical reasons. However, in order to achieve accurate and reliable results, the operator must learn the essential skills required to elicit an acceptable test. Operators may come from a variety of healthcare professions, including respiratory therapy, nursing, physical therapy, medical assisting, and many others. Part 1 will address the clinical indications for using this clinical tool, the basic values obtained, and the calibration of the instrument prior to testing the subject. It includes, through demonstration, the key elements needed to assure the device is operating properly.

Video Runtime: 56 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 18 Minutes

In part 2 of the spirometry series, we will review and demonstrate the correct technique used to coach a subject in order to achieve accurate results. We will discuss the key variables needed to calculate an individual's predicted normal range and the preferred reference set used to calculate this range. Through visual discussion, the course also reviews common testing errors and how an acceptable and repeatable test session is defined. It also helps the learner understand the most common patterns of lung disease (obstruction and restriction) through basic analogous modeling. The learner should be able to perform and assess the quality of a test session by the end of this two-part series. Practice in performing the test on subjects thereafter is the final key in obtaining true competency and quality test results.
