Course Description:
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.

Learning Objectives:
After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to: 

• Discuss the technical and analytic skills necessary to perform optimal pulmonary function testing. 
• Incorporate high-level interpretation strategies for pulmonary function testing into your daily clinical environment. 
• Supervise and perform regular quality control on all pulmonary function procedures performed in your laboratory. 
• Discuss the current controversies and acquisition techniques required for critical care ultrasonography. 
• Review outstanding clinical cases with recognized experts in pulmonary function testing data acquisition and interpretation. 
• Select an optimal normal value data set for your spirometry, lung volumes, and gas transfer studies.
