Spirometry is one of the very few medical tests that require a substantial effort from the patient in order for it to be successful. It's critical that the person performing the test is able to not only encourage the patient but is also able to pick up technique errors or performance errors that relate to the test being obsolete. This requires knowledge of "interpretation" during the real time testing.
- Do you know that how to correctly interpret the results?
- Are you sure you are performing the test correctly?
- Are you aware of all the contraindications to testing?
- Do you understand the importance of calibration and know how to do it correctly?
