Description

Accurate assessment of lung function with pulmonary function testing is a vital tool in patient care. In this program, pulmonologist Dr. David Kaminsky explains how to perform and interpret spirometry, how to evaluate chronic respiratory conditions, including how to determine the severity of COPD and asthma, and how to track the effects of smoking and use the concept of lung age to help motivate your patients to stop smoking.

After completing this activity, the practitioner will be better able to:

  • Outline the basic pulmonary function tests (PFTs) and their uses.
  • Describe the technique of sprirometry.
  • Explain how to interpret spirometry results.
