S07--PT&RT-CLIN: Pulmonary Function Testing: Utilization & Testing Methodology in Clinical Practice, Clinical Research, & Global Application

Oct 31, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Oct 31, 2019 3:45pm


Pulmonary function studies have been a mainstay in the assessment and treatment in CF. This session will explore the clinical applications of pulmonary function studies throughout the lifespan of the person with CF. The session will review research to practice topics that have implications in the care of CF. Additionally, it will investigate modes of testing on the horizon that may have impact in CF pulmonary function testing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe various pulmonary function modalities that are being used globally in both a clinical and research capacity in CF.
  • Describe how these tests are being performed, evidence for clinical utility and identify research applications and their role in CF.
  • Describe how results of these tests are interpreted and how interpretation may be used to inform research and/or guide the care of patients with CF.
