Spirometry and Assessment – COPD Diagnosis — Afternoon

Thursday, 16th November 2017 / 14.00pm

This session is for GPs and clinicians who are currently providing, or want to provide, Quality Assured Spirometry (QAS) with a view to diagnose COPD. It will mainly cover 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. There will be other sessions advertised including the practicalities of setting up Quality Assured Spirometry during next year.
