Sample Spirometry Tests
The following are sample exercises where you can practice the process of determining a valid test.
A valid test requires all of the following:
1. At least three acceptable maneuvers
2. A repeatable FVC, where the largest FVC and second largest FVC within 150 milliliters (0.15 liters)
3. A repeatable FEV1, where the largest FEV1 and second largest FEV1 are within 150 milliliters (0.15 liters)
You should not exceed a maximum of 8 curves and the above are goals during test performance

Note: Red curves are unacceptable, purple curves have unacceptable end of test (EOT), and blue curves are acceptable. Repeatability is not shown or calculated for unacceptable curves.
