Speaker Kaiser Lim, MD and Carl D Mottram RRT, RPFT, FAARC Date Aug 29, 2019 1:00 PM

Respiratory therapists are vital to the accurate diagnosis of various pulmonary diseases and are the cornerstone of good pulmonary diagnostic tests. One of these tests, used to diagnose the reactivity of the airway, is the methacholine challenge test. While this test has been conducted for many years, recent guidelines and availability of medication have complicated the clinician’s ability to recommend and conduct the challenge test. This presentation will explore the indications, methods, and technical aspects of the methacholine challenge test.
