Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT)

Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT)

Screening Test

A Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is considered a screening test in occupational health. It is an extremely important tool as it assists in monitoring a worker’s lung function status.

  1. Assists with worker placement
  2. Assists with early detection of exposure to respiratory hazards
  3. Assists with early intervention and treatment
  4. Assists with identifying airborne respiratory hazards – which can be appropriately evaluated by the sites Industrial Hygiene
  5. Assists with a worker’s ability to wear respiratory protective equipment
  6. Assists in continual monitoring of an individual’s disease progress or efficiency of their treatments

In the screening test, a device called a spirometer is used. These tests are to interpret and compare the observed FVC and FEV1 and their ratio FEV1/FCV% with predicted average values and Lower Limits of normal (LLN). The goal of this sophisticated device is to determine whether the worker’s results will fall within a normal range, below normal, or indicate a possible respiratory impairment.
