Are you considering incorporating spirometry into your practice?

If so, this module will provide an overview of spirometry, however, to achieve competence in performing spirometry in your practice, it is also essential to complete an appropriately structured, high-quality practical spirometry course. Theoretical (only) online courses do not meet this training requirement.
