Abstract

This manual provides a step-by-step guide to assessments of infant lung function using the CareFusion MasterScreen™ BabyBody Plethysmograph. The authors have included a section to cover essential background information and developmental changes in respiratory physiology during the first years of life which affect both the measurement and the interpretation of lung function results in infants and young children. A detailed section on data interpretation and management and a recommended reading list have also been included. The main aims of the manual are to provide: • Background information on developmental physiology and insight into the special considerations to bear in mind when assessing infants; • A step-by-step guide to new/current users of ILFT equipment to ensure the assessments of infant lung function tests are performed as accurately as possible • Guidance on data analysis and interpretation. The manual is aimed at all paediatricians, respiratory physiologists and researchers who are interested in the field, and have purchased the CareFusion MasterScreen BabyBody device for use in their lung function laboratory (or are intending to do so).
