¿Qué aprendes en este curso?
There are around 3 million COPD sufferers in the UK, of which 2 million have yet to be diagnosed (Health Commission, 2006). The prevalence of respiratory disease is increasing and accurate diagnosis is essential to ensure prompt delivery of health advice, support and treatment. Spirometry is the cornerstone of respiratory disease diagnosis.
During this workshop, you will review and refresh your knowledge of:
- Spirometry standards
- The principles underlying spirometry
- Patient preparation
- Differentiating between normal from abnormal results (including technical errors)
- Evaluating common trace errors, utilising practical experience
You will take away a refreshed understanding of the theory underpinning spirometry and will be taught how to perform it accurately. You will understand the key principles regarding patient preparation for the procedure, interpreting results and identifying common errors, relative to your practice setting.
Learning will be shared with other practitioners, using spirometry equipment and reviewing both obstructive and restrictive spirometry results. It will benefit you to bring along samples of anonymised spirometry tracing, relative to your practical experiences.
