Impulse oscillometry is a noninvasive procedure that can be performed within few minutes. The purpose of the procedure is to measure the resistance of the small and large airways, as well as the reactants of the airways. In contrast to spirometry, the test performs measurement during tidal breathing.
By the end of the session, learners will be able to:
• Define impulse oscillometry (IOS) fundamentals and how the IOS system operates.
• Clarify the IOS indications and advantages.
• Describe what are the measured IOS Parameters, how to interpret each parameter and its relation to lung mechanics.
• Recognize the IOS variability and its limitations.
This lecture will present by expert of the topic to clarify different aspects to participants using PowerPoint slides, also, the participants able to asks their question and share their experience with speaker and participants by typing in the chat box at virtual room.
