Pulmonary Function Testing PDF Print Email
Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT), also known as Spirometry Testing  measures lung volume and flow and is a good indicator of whether a person would experience difficulty using respiratory protective equipment. Alliance Occupational Medicine is using state-of-the-art spirometers that are easily transported to the job site.
First, employees complete the mandatory OSHA respirator medical clearance questionnaire. Next, the PFT test is administered and if the results of the person’s PFT show a forced expiratory volume and forced vital capacity greater than 70%, the person is medically cleared and can proceed on with the respirator fit test. It only takes a few minutes to administer a Pulmonary Function Test (PFT). After the medical data is collected, it is reviewed by a licensed physician. The clearance letter, signed by the physician, is then made available to the employer in compliance with the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard.
