In diagnostic laboratories, accuracy, effectiveness and efficiency depend heavily on quality management. The 4 pillars of QM in a PF lab should encompass quality control of: calibration & verification of sensors, precision of instruments using mechanical models, biological subject quality control, and last but equally important, measurement quality control.
PFT diagnostic laboratories that enact quality assurance & management procedures will recognize “out of control” instruments, or low quality test results, immediately and well before the potential for misclassification of PFT interpretations can occur, having potential consequences for patients.
The American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society regularly publish PFT guidelines that recommend a variety of strong quality assurance and quality control programs. Yet there remains a low percentage of compliance or diligence on the part of PFT labs globally. Attend this webinar to review and discuss the benefit, and how to enact quality management programs & strategies that will help build and maintain quality programs in your PFT laboratory.
