SPIROLA: Spirometry Longitudinal Data Analysis Software (Fact Sheet)
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2016-117
The Spirometry Longitudinal Data Analysis (SPIROLA) software is an integrated visual and quantitative tool that aids in monitoring lung function in individuals over time. To identify individuals with excessive decline in lung function accurately and in a timely manner, it is important to maintain acceptable quality of the spirometry tests and precision of the longitudinal spirometry data. Additionally, identification of excessive decline followed by appropriate interventions may help to preserve an individual’s lung function.
This fact sheet provides instructions on how to download the Spirola software.
