Technical errors can easily compromise the reliability of diagnostic spirometry.

For example:

  • What is the reproducibility of the blows?
  • What do the size and shape of the graphs suggest?
  • Do the test results fit the clinical picture?

Our easy-to-use checklist gives you a step-by-step guide to performing high-quality spirometry.

Information on the National Register of certified professionals and operators for improving the quality of diagnostic spirometry can also be found on the PCRA website.

Test yourself with our CPD module on spirometry.

And finally, stop by our video demonstrating best technique.
