Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0071016198, Paperback)

The concise, invaluable guide for health professionals of all kinds, now in a third edition!

"Spirometry is an essential part of asthma management. This Pocket Guide provides straightforward advice on its importance, performance and measurement and demonstrates David Johns' amazing expertise and communications skills on this topic."--Kristine Whorlow, CEO, National Asthma Council Australia

The clinical interpretation of spirometry is critically dependent on the correct operation and accuracy of the spirometer, performance of the correct breathing maneuver, selection of the best results, and use of relevant predicted normal values. This third edition presents this vital information in a practical, systematic way.

The book has been thoroughly updated throughout and complies with the latest standards developed jointly by the American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society and includes revised all-age predicted normal value tables in accordance with the latest research.
