EM2207E "Pulmonary Function Testing: History, 'Normal' Values, and Implications for Bias" (IM GR-072222)
Purpose and Overview
Understand history of spirometry, where reference equations and predicted/normal values come from, and understand how these predicted values can lead to bias in interpretation.
UT Southwestern faculty, fellows, residents and medical students, community physicians, nurse clinicians, physician assistants and nurses.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
- Understand general history of spirometry.
- Understand how reference equations were derived.
