The measurement of diffusing capacity (DLCO) of the lung is accomplished through single-breath carbon monoxide uptake. In 2017, the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and European Respiratory Society (ERS) jointly updated their technical standards to improve the quality of this measurement. This presentation will review the changes to the previous standards as well as identify how these standards affect the pulmonary function laboratory.
Successful completion of this course requires a score of 70% on the post-test.
