Abstract

 

Currently, the criteria for applying and evaluating spirometer measurements have been defined by American and European Respiratory Societies. Several pulmonary function test laboratories in Turkey as well as in the world use these standards. However, different interpretation results are observed in different pulmonary function test laboratories. This report is prepared to provide a basis for a standardized asssessment in our pulmonary function test in our country.
