Abstract A computer program for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, including flow-volume loops, lung volumes, and diffusing capacity, is described. Comparisons of data obtained before and after administration of bronchodilators and comparison with previous tests are also available as part of the program. Computer interpretation of pulmonary function testing accelerates the reporting of test data and may have a role in education in the discipline or respiratory medicine and related fields.
