Abstract
Spirometry is the simplest pulmonary function test and recently became available to all physicians by means of economic and performing devices. Spirometry however requires a good knowledge of indications, realization and interpretation. Expert recommendations, regularly updated by the American and European respiratory societies, specify the necessary conditions for spirometry to provide useful information for the care of patients.
