ERS School Course on Monitoring of Airway Diseases, Veruno 2011

Target audience
  • Pneumologists
  • Pneumology trainees  
  • Research fellows involved in research on airway inflammation/oxidative stress  
  • Laboratory technicians performing lung function tests, methacholine challenge or exhaled breath tests
Target audience  Show

Educational aims
  • To provide you with a critical overview of different modes of monitoring airway diseases and associated inflammation and oxidative stress in research and clinical practice, under the guidance of a faculty who are experts in their field.
  • To give you methodological advice with information on the current guidelines in each method.
  • You will learn the most important steps in using these techniques and determine the most frequent pitfalls when using them, together with potential interpreting data problems.
  • Furthermore, you will learn the potential place of these techniques in monitoring airway diseases. The programme of the course is designed to form a bridge between basic science and clinical work.
