Weekly Sims

Photos of the setup for Weekly FVC simulation, Weekly DLCO simulation and Weekly Biological DLCO.  Also, a screenshot of the QC log book.

Performing the weekly simulations in the PFT lab.  After completing the daily calibrations, FVC sim, DLCO sim and biological DLCO were done.

What do you think about our log sheet?

Maneuvers

To have a better understanding of PFT maneuvers, watching the RT/technician screen as the patient performs these steps may be helpful for some students.
I have uploaded 4 videos (SVC, Spirometry, Body Plethysmography, and DLCO).

Keep in mind that these are for demonstration purposes only, and software models and standards can change.
