Accredited spirometry courses

Spirometry (pulmonary function testing) is used within occupational, or workplace health, and respiratory clinics to assess and monitor an individual’s general respiratory health and capability. All Amplivox supplied spirometers have automatic interpretation based on predictive software. Graphical data displays and a range of data management options to make for an efficient and forward thinking health surveillance program. The courses are designed around education and are not product specific.

We have developed a number of spirometry courses for the theory and practice of pulmonary function measurements within an occupational health environment.

 

Our 1-day occupational spirometry foundation level course  is  intended for OH trained individuals who are new to spirometry.

We recommend attending this course if you are an occupational health technician/professional who has no experience in spirometry. This course is designed to give focus to the practicalities of spirometry to ensure consistency and accuracy of spirometry measurements. It does not cover interpretation.

Upon completion we would then recommend consideration of the Amplivox spirometry competency course.

We recommend our 1.5 day occupational spirometry competency course as a very comprehensive course intended for OH trained individuals who have experience of spirometry measurements and who require competency based assessment to conduct lung function measurements. . The course focuses on the measurement and interpretation of pulmonary function testing and there is an assessment on the second half day.

The 1 day occupational spirometry update course is designed for OH professionals who require update/refresher training in all aspects of occupational spirometry measurements and interpretation. The course is suitable for individuals who currently conduct spirometry in the workplace.

Content can include:

  • Anatomy of the respiratory system
  • Spirometry protocols
  • Calibration requirements and practical session
  • Consistency of measurements
  • Factors that can causes measurement errors
  • Peak flow meters & practical session
  • Interpretation and practical session
  • Written assessment (competency course only)
