Pulmonary Function Testing-Pediatrics




The Pulmonary Function Technology: Pediatrics course was designed to improve the respiratory therapist's knowledge in various aspects of pulmonary function testing specific to infant and pediatric patients.

This course contains five (5) chapters, each with a video-based lecture and supplemental readings to enhance your knowledge of the subject matter. After you have watched all 5 videos, you will need to successfully complete the post-course test to earn your CRCE.

A score of 70% is required to successfully complete the course.

It is recommended, though not required, that you complete the AARC Pulmonary Function Technology: Spirometry course prior to completing this course. The AARC Pulmonary Function Technology: Pediatrics course does not contain a module focused on spirometry.

**Please note that all programs require the participant to view the entire program prior to taking the final quiz and obtaining a course certificate.**


Approved for 4.50 CRCE Hours.
