The primary purpose of pulmonary function testing is to identify the severity of pulmonary impairment. Pulmonary function testing has diagnostic and therapeutic roles and helps clinicians answer some general MedlinePlus: The primary function of the respiratory system is to maintain normality of arterial blood gases, that is, arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO 2) and arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO 2).To achieve this goal, several processes must be accomplished, including alveolar ventilation, pulmonary perfusion, ventilation–perfusion matching, and gas transfer across the . The primary purpose of the ATS Pulmonary Function Laboratory Management and Procedure Manual (ATS Manual) is to provide a tool to help laboratories develop their own pulmonary function laboratory procedure manual. The ATS Manual can be used as-is, or as a template to customize a manual for your laboratory. It is the hope. Laboratory Evaluation of Pulmonary Function: Medicine & Health Science Books @ ed by:
