Spirometry Training

The Asthma Center offers spirometry training to clinicians and technicians who perform pulmonary function tests in independent pediatric practices.

Spirometry measures the mechanical functioning of the lungs and is an important tool in asthma assessment. Training takes place in two four-hour sessions that are at least one week apart.

Upon completion of the training, attendees are able to:

  • Correctly perform spirometry
  • Assess test quality and interpret results accurately
  • Understand and use predicted normal values
  • Recognize patterns of abnormality
  • Determine disease type and severity
  • Determine reversibility

For more information on spirometry training, download our spirometry brochure or call 860.545.9442.
