The scope of this document is limited mainly to routine Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT’s) and some associated non-routine procedures but similar principles should be applied to any other testing procedures undertaken within a Clinical Physiology (CP) department.

Respiratory diagnostic testing is usually undertaken by clinical physiologists but may also be performed by clinical scientists, respiratory specialist nurses and, increasingly, spirometry is being undertaken by occupational health nurses and nurses in general practice. Where the term ‘physiologist’ is used in this document it is intended to include any healthcare practitioner performing diagnostic testing.
