PFTs are typically interpreted by comparing data collected in a single patient or subject to reference (predicted) values based on healthy participants. Predicted values should come from studies of normal or healthy persons with similar anthropometric characteristics. Lung volumes, spirometry and flow volume loops, and diffusing capacity are all components of PFTs. PFTs are commonly requested to: Look for indications of respiratory disease when patients report with respiratory symptoms (e.g. dyspnea, cough, cyanosis, wheezing, etc.), Assess for lung disease progression, monitor the efficacy of a specific treatment, and so on. Let's learn the fundamentals of PFT with Dr. Salil Bendre, a famous Medflix select faculty. This session is continuation of part-1 session on PFT.
