Professor Paul Enright has written a PFT (Pulmonary Function Testing) Interpretation White Paper which he presented in part at the TSANZSRS Conference in Adelaide in 2014.

The topics covered are:

  • Office-based DLCO tests help Pulmonologists to make important clinical decisions
  • Spirometry and DLCO separate asthma from COPD and CHF in adult smokers with dyspnea
  • Body box tests rarely add diagnostic information to spirometry, DLCO, and a chest X-ray when evaluating patients with spirometric restriction
  • Body box tests add little or no diagnostic information to spirometry, DLCO, and a chest X-ray when evaluating patients with airway obstruction
  • How to optimise the quality and clinical value of DLCO tests
