Hands on training with enthusiastic lectures packed with updated information insuring that this training need not be boring or painful. The course gives you everything you need to know about performing this lung function test correctly, insures data quality and the skills to manage the data effectively. Students learn when the test is indicated, what the results mean, and what OSHA regulations govern its usage. Practice sessions expose the student to a variety of Flow & Volume spirometers, and the pros and cons of each are discussed without bias or endorsements. Those who are shopping for equipment leave with a clear idea of what they want.
The fast moving pace with lots of interaction and individualization makes for wide awake students. A detailed resource spirometry manual is provided with all the what, why, when, where and how of doing the test. Student course evaluations include such comments as: “The best course I’ve ever taken”, “I learned so much and wish I’d taken this sooner”, “It was actually fun and I wish there could be a third day”.
“By taking the spirometry course, I realized it was the best way for me to ensure that I could do my job with integrity and competency. I will continue to participate every three years.” Cora L.E. Christian, MD, MPH , Medical Director, Hovensa Oil Company, USVI
