Course programme

Get an overview of pulmonary function testing and data interpretation from our course. Teaching includes concepts of measurement in dynamic and static lung volumes, gas transfer factor and respiratory muscle function.

The background physiology will be explored and the impact of disease investigated. You will learn about airway pharmacology and reversibility testing. A significant amount of time will be dedicated to the interpretation of pulmonary function results, with regular cases being presented and discussed.
