ERS/ATS technical standard on interpretative strategies for routine lung function tests

At the end of 2021, the ERS/ATS task force led by Sanja Stanojevic published the updated ERS/ATS standard for the interpretation of pulmonary function tests (PFT). In this summary document, we highlight what we believe are the most important elements from the 81-page document.

How can a normal lung function pattern still potentially hide asthma?

Asthma is a common, chronic disease that affects approximately 300 million people worldwide. It was noticed that ArtiQ.PFT often detected Asthma in patients having a normal lung function pattern according to the ERS/ATS 2021 Interpretation Guidelines and the GLI reference values, but why is that? The ArtiQ team did a study to try to better understand why ArtiQ.PFT detects asthma in these cases.

What is the Impact of the new 2021 ERS/ATS Interpretation Guidelines?

Artificial Intelligence in Pulmonology: threat or opportunity?

Our world has changed drastically in the past decades with the advancement of new technologies. We have seen revolutions that can impact many different areas of our lives: self-driving cars became a reality, computers are beating world champions in chess, navigation apps show us the fastest route… All these technologies have one thing in common: artificial intelligence (AI).

Guestblog on how AI could outperform 120 pulmonologists in a PFT interpretation study.

Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are a group of common medical tests that measure how well the lungs work. The tests usually refer to a combination of spirometry, body-plethysmography and diffusion capacity test.
