Abstract

Despite increasing theoretical knowledge on available techniques of lung function measurements in preschool children, its application in clinical practice remains poor.
In this review a range of tests including spirometry, body plethysmography, interrupter technique, forced oscillation technique and its modification impulse oscillometry and gas mixing techniques is presented. Clinical applicability of these tests according to the recent American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society guidelines is also described.
