Spirometry and Assessment – COPD Diagnosis — Morning

Thursday, 15th March 2018 / 9.00am

This session was for GPs and clinicians who are currently providing, or want to provide, Quality Assured Spirometry (QAS) with a view to diagnose COPD. It  covered the theory with a chance to apply knowledge in interpretation of some real patient traces. In more detail: what is Quality Assured Spirometry, who should have spirometry, the pitfalls to look out for, when to consider asthma as a diagnosis, interpretation of spirometry traces and when and who to refer to if the diagnosis remains unclear. 



Homelessness — Morning
