Spirometry: General aspects of the technique and a guide for test interpretation
This book was written with the main intention of disseminating information about spirometry, hoping that this will contribute to a more widespread use of the test in clinical practice. The book is divided in two parts. The first part deals with general aspects of the spirometry technique, and the second part is dedicated to test interpretation. The first part contains information and descriptions intending to provide the reader a general idea of the technique. This part of the book is addressed to students and health professionals who are not engaged in working with pulmonary function tests and want information on a subject that is frequently covered only by a few pages in many textbooks. The second part is intended to be a guide to spirometry interpretation. The second part of the book is also directed toward students and health professionals not working with spirometry, however, the content of this part may also be of interest to technicians, nurses and physicians already working with spirometry.
