Lung function testing and AIDS.

Author information

Lung Function Unit, Brompton Hospital, London, U.K.


Lung function testing on patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) has been restricted because of the risks of cross infection. We have adapted equipment which is currently used for routine lung function testing with inexpensive disposable components to remove the risk of contamination. Results from the modified equipment were compared with those obtained using conventional equipment on 56 subjects. We found an excellent correlation between compared values for all parameters.
