"The Pocket Guide to Spirometry, 2e" is an invaluable guide for medical practitioners and health professionals involved in the performance and interpretation of spirometry. Spirometry is the most commonly used method for assessing lung function. It is one of the primary tools used for the diagnosis, assessment and management of many respiratory diseases including asthma and COPD. Growing worldwide incidence of asthma and COPD as a major ongoing condition means spirometry is of high relevance to a broad range of health professionals. This handbook covers essentials facts about spirometry including what it is and how it can be used effectively, how the test is performed and interpreted, different types of spirometers and some common pitfalls and problems. Features new to this edition include: updating throughout to align with new international standards as the European ERS 1993 and American ATS 1995 have been merged; alignment with current terminology and practice, particularly on predicted values; new lung function reference tables with lower limits of normal providing more accurate parameters for decision making, and new tables for children and adolescents; coverage of new index of spirometry based on a six second expiration; and, reference to an online spirometry buyer's guide for currency with equipment and manufacturing details.
