SERIES “ATS/ERS TASK FORCE: STANDARDISATION OF LUNG FUNCTION TESTING” Edited by V. Brusasco, R. Crapo and G. Viegi Number 1 in this Series ⇓In preparing the joint statements on lung function testing for the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS), it was agreed by the working party that the format of the statements should be modified so that they were easier to use by both technical and clinical staff. This statement contains details about procedures that… Expand
Standardisation of lung function testing: helpful guidance from the ATS/ERS Task Force
TLDR
A critical overview of the new ATS/ERS guidelines for the performance of spirometry, lung volumes, and carbon monoxide transfer factor is provided. Expand
Coming together: the ATS/ERS consensus on clinical pulmonary function testing
TLDR
A new Task Force on pulmonary function testing, implemented by the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), has recently started its work based on the ATS/ERS documents, with the hope that they will be accepted by other respiratory societies. Expand
Interpretative strategies for lung function tests
TLDR
This section is written to provide guidance in interpreting pulmonary function tests (PFTs) to medical directors of hospital-based laboratories that perform PFTs, and physicians who are responsible for interpreting the results of PFTS most commonly ordered for clinical purposes. Expand
ARTP statement on pulmonary function testing
TLDR
New lung function testing guidance from the Association for Respiratory Technology & Physiology (ARTP), updates the original version from 1994, and provides a state-of-the-art update in the measurement and interpretation of lung function assessments. Expand
Pulmonary Function Testing in the Evaluation of Patients with Allergic and Immunologic Disorders
  • R. Kanner
  • Medicine
  • Clinical reviews in allergy & immunology
  • 2009
TLDR
This issue will cover the performance of spirometry, lung volume measurements, the determination of the diffusing capacity that is also called transfer factor or carbon monoxide uptake, bronchoprovocation challenge, and a provocative discussion of the problems in the interpretation of the results of the studies. Expand
ARTP statement on pulmonary function testing 2020
TLDR
Recommendations set out the requirements and considerations that need to be made in terms of environmental and patient factors that may influence both the performance and interpretation of lung function tests and incorporate procedures to ensure quality assured diagnostic investigations. Expand
The ATS/ERS consensus on clinical pulmonary function testing
Recently, the need for more uniform pulmonary function testing across the world has progressively increased. This prompted the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the European Respiratory SocietyExpand
Canadian Thoracic Society Pulmonary Standards Committee
TLDR
In the current issue of the Canadian Respiratory Journal, Tan et al (1) propose new reference equations for Caucasian adults, and points to the need for the development of ‘Made in Canada’ prediction equations for lung function. Expand
Joint Indian Chest Society-National College of Chest Physicians (India) guidelines for spirometry
TLDR
A consensus statement for planning, performing and interpreting spirometry in a systematic manner across all levels of healthcare in India, and stresses the use of standard equipment, and the need for quality control, to optimize testing. Expand
Conducting spirometry in occupational health at COVID-19 times: international standards
TLDR
New standards underline three key elements to obtain high quality pulmonary function data: an accurate and precise instrumentation, a patient/subject capable of performing acceptable and repeatable measurements, and a motivated technologist to elicit maximum performance from the patient. Expand

Measurement of lung volumes in humans: review and recommendations from an ATS/ERS workshop.
TLDR
A workshop was convened and charged with developing recommendations for measuring absolute lung volumes in humans, recognizing that these measurements often presented different challenges in infants and children and believed that exchanges of information about the measurements unique to either adult or paediatric population might be helpful for better defining optimal techniques and clinical limitations for both groups of subjects.

Redefining end of test (EOT) criteria for pulmonary function testing in children.
TLDR
It is proposed that patients be coached to obtain maximal effort and that the curves be individually fitted to an exponential equation to determine whether the patient has achieved EOT as defined by FVC95. Expand
Respiratory function measurements in infants: symbols, abbreviations and units.
TLDR
The list of abbreviations has been modified and extended by the joint ATS/ERS Working Party on "Infant Pulmonary Function Testing" to be appropriate for the field of infant lung function testing. Expand

TLDR
In studies such as the effects of drugs in patients with lung disease, or of adverse effects of environmental factors on the lungs, observed values should not be compared with reference values; instead, a comparison should be made with values obtained in an appropriately chosen control group.

TLDR
Recording the PEF is of value in clinical practice where it can be helpful in monitoring the progress of airflow limitation and the effects of treatment, and in epidemiological and occupational studies for identifying the presence of breeze limitation, assessing its severity and variation. Expand

Effects of a filter at the mouth on pulmonary function tests.
TLDR
It is concluded that the filter Spirobac has a statistically significant effect on the results of some pulmonary function tests, but this is not considered to be clinically significant, since the changes due to the filter were within the intraindividual variability of repeated measurements for almost all the function indices.
