NIOSH-Approved Spirometry Refresher (Re-certification)

Event Date: 12/5/2014
Location: The University of Iowa Institute of Rural & Environmental Health  - Coralville, IA  

The National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH)-approved course is intended to provide a review of current testing standards and guidelines, common errors and corrective actions and how to differentiate between normal, obstructive, restrictive and mixed lung disease patterns.

The course is intended as a refresher (or re-certification) for nurses, medical assistants and other health care professionals who are responsible for conducting spirometry in the workplace or clinic settings. Participants doing spirometry testing need to complete a refresher course every five years, so this course is designed for professionals nearing the five year mark since they completed the full 2-day training course.
