Spirometry is a common type of pulmonary function test (PFT) that measures how well a person can move air in and out of their lungs. In occupational settings, spirometry can be used to establish a baseline before assigning a worker to job tasks that are physically demanding, that require use of a respirator, or that may expose the worker to respiratory hazards. Physicians may also require a PFT as part of the annual respirator certification process.
Accurate spirometry testing, interpretation, and follow-up are critical to effective screening and surveillance of workers exposed to respiratory hazards. Whether spirometry is conducted to comply with an OSHA regulation or as part of another workplace-mandated program, its value is compromised when testing is conducted incorrectly, equipment is inaccurate, or results are misinterpreted.
All of our spirometry technicians have completed NIOSH-approved spirometry courses and work under the direct supervision of our Medical Director with over 30 years of industry experience. Our technicians come to your facility to administer the PFT using the latest in digital spirometers, providing fast and accurate pulmonary function tests and comprehensive spirometry test documentation.
Our experienced respiratory technicians conduct tens of thousands of fit tests per year. Give us a call, send us an email or complete the questionnaire below for your personized quote. We will be glad to help.
