A guide to Simple Office Spirometry

This is a great booklet as a resource for anyone who does simple office spirometry.  It is in a pdf format so it can be downloaded, printed or added to your iPad's ibook.  It is important to coach your patients to perform the spirometry at their best effort as garbage in is garbage out.  In other words, if the test is not done at maximal effort and cannot be reproduced, the test will not give you the information you need to make a diagnosis or provide you with a baseline of the patients lung health.  

Novus Medical Inc. trainers can also help you get the most out of your testing.  Our trainers have decades of experience and in depth knowledge of the ATS guidelines.
