Description

This one-day, interactive course is designed as an update for those who have successfully completed the initial NIOSH-Approved Spirometry Training Course within the past five years and can provide a copy of that training certificate to the course director. In this interactive workshop, an emphasis will be placed on practical aspects of spirometric testing and making sense of spirometric results. Students are encouraged to supply information on the spirometers they currently or plan to use and samples of spirograms from their work setting.
