At-home Spirometry May Help in Lung Function Monitoring

At-home evaluation of lung function using a spirometry device is a “feasible and valid measure” for people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) who have preserved lung function, clinical trial data show. However, further study is needed to evaluate the utility of at-home evaluations, since correlations between changes seen at home and in the clinic “were weak, mainly due to variability in the measurements obtained using home spirometry,” the researchers said. The study, “Home spirometry in…
