Interpreting pulmonary function tests: Recognize the pattern, and the

function tests is in how they are inter- preted. They can be used to identify the pat- tern and severity of a physiologic abnormali- ty, but used alone, they generally cannot dis- tinguish among the potential causes of the abnormalities. Thus, pulmonary function tests must be interpreted in the context of a proper history, physical ...

Interpretation of Pulmonary Function Tests in Clinical Practice

Abstract Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are diagnostic modalities that evaluate qualitatively and quantitatively the size and function of the lungs. The most com- mon areas of evaluation in clinical practice are: (a) the measurement of the lung volume, (b) the assessment and measurement of the airway function (upper and.
