Abstract This document attempts to provide a broad consensus statement about common practice in respiratory function testing and the use of its results in assessing respiratory disease and disability. It is written for respiratory and general clinicians. General principles only are provided and the source documents are referenced but detail is not exhaustive and technically the document does not attempt to provide best practice guidelines. It is meant to reflect usual practice and in some individual patients use of respiratory function tests outside these guidelines may clearly be appropriate in particular clinical circumstances. General statements about quality assurance and cost benefit will be given at the end of the document but for each individual test there are sections on description, indications, interpretation, normal values, specific quality assurance and cost benefit. The scope of the document will cover tests of mechanical function, gas exchange and exercise assessment.
