Spirometry Testing in Occupational Health – 2021 Physician Update - AOHC 2021

Occupational medicine physicians frequently use spirometry in their practices, but their traditional medical training rarely prepares them to appreciate the impact of the technical pitfalls of spirometry testing, nor does it introduce them to the importance of using optimal interpretation algorithms. Both elements are important when practitioners use spirometry with other diagnostic tools to evaluate workers for occupational lung disease and/or to medically clear them to use respirators. This ACOEM course provides down-to-earth guidance and presents recent OSHA regulatory changes related to respirable crystalline silica and NIOSH’s Coal Worker Health Surveillance Program. It draws on spirometry information from a comprehensive NIOSH-approved course, and selecting case examples for a physician audience to illustrate the use of spirometry and other diagnostic tools to evaluate workers for occupational lung disease and/or for medical clearance to use their respirator.
