Some spirometer readings may need to include both pre- and post-bronchodilator tests. If both readings are to be included in the same test set, all tests must be completed before saving it to a case. If a test set is saved to a case and post-bronchodilator readings need to be added, add the readings as a separate test set.
To add post-bronchodilator tests to the same test set:
Step 1: From the Spirometer screen, click on the thumbnail for the test set. The report opens.
Step 2: In the upper right-hand corner, select the type of bronchodilator used with the patient from the drop-down menu. If it is not listed in the drop-down menu, type it in.
A pop-up window opens, stating that the report has changed and asking the user to save it.
Step 3: Click on the Yes button. The spirometry test screen opens. Perform tests and complete as normal.
