Abstract

Pulmonary function tests are routinely used in the diagnosis and follow-up of respiratory diseases. In preschool children assessment and evaluation of lung function has always been challenging but improved techniques that require only minimal collaboration allowed obtaining reliable and useful results even in this group of patients. In this review we will describe the different techniques used in clinical practice to measure lung function in preschool children.
