The importance of spirometry in an occupational respiratory protection program is often overlooked. Spirometry is a method of assessing lung function by measuring the volume of air a patient can forcefully expel from the lungs after maximum inspiration. It can assist health professionals in assessing an employee’s lung health when their job dictates the need for respiratory protection.
It can also be used to:
- Manage Asthma Patients
- Evaluate Shortness of Breath
- COPD Identification
- Monitor Response to Treatments
- And Overall Health Promotion
Protecting the health of workers is the primary objective of all occupational health programs in the workplace, which is why Levitt-Safety distributes spirometry instruments from an industry leader like New Diagnostic Design (ndd).
