ERS School Course on Monitoring of asthma, COPD and other airway diseases

Target audience
  • Pulmonologists
  • Trainees in pulmonology
  • 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 the participants with a critical overview of different modes of monitoring airway diseases associated inflammation and oxidative stress in research and clinical practice.
  • To give participants methodological advice with information on the current guidelines in each method and technique.
  • To present the most important steps in using these techniques and determine the most frequent pitfalls when using them, together with potential data interpretation problems.
