Restart Spirometry

We are now entering the post-peak phase of the global COVID-19 pandemic and a safe return to respiratory diagnostic testing is being advised. We’ve created a helpful guide to get you started.

With a return to diagnostic spirometry in primary care, we know that patient safety is of paramount importance to you. The pandemic has taught us that we must rethink how to perform pulmonary function testing within general practice settings. Patient and practitioner safety and the reduction of virus transmission are the main priority.

International guidance has been reasonably consistent on the considerations for resuming pulmonary function services and testing post-COVID.

We have summarized guidance from the ERS, ATS, ARTP, PCRS, BTS, and ANZSRS into 5 key considerations.

Bacterial Viral Filters (BVFs) for safe spirometry testing

Single-use BVFs are the best way to perform safe pulmonary function testing within your practice. 

The American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS) recommend using antibacterial antiviral filters.
