Gain practical experience with the necessary technical aspects for performing PFT calibration, maneuvers, and testing. You will have the opportunity to perform testing on several vendors’ equipment on-site, according to accepted ATS/ERS standards, and acquire valuable experience in common PFT laboratory procedures, including spirometry, flow-volume loops, lung volume measurement, maximal respiratory pressures, gas transfer measurements, nitrogen washout, helium dilution, methacholine or hyperosmolar saline challenge, and arterial blood gas measurements. Learn high-level interpretive strategies, reinforced with outstanding case-based clinical examples. Small and large group lectures, as well as hands-on demonstrations, will address appropriate normal reference value sets, newer equipment modalities (eg, impulse oscillometry), quality control, biologic process control, laboratory standards for hygiene, infection control, personnel qualifications, and the technician’s role in quality; report generation and formatting; and strategies to manage PFT personnel, equipment, and operations.

Prerequisites 

Some prior exposure to pulmonary function testing and interpretation is required. 

Target Audience 

Pulmonary and critical care physicians, new pulmonary function laboratory directors, mid-level pulmonary providers (NPs, PAs), family medicine and hospitalist providers, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation providers, and pulmonary fellows are encouraged to attend.
