Abstract

The aim of this position paper is to define quality control and acceptance criteria for measuring passive respiratory mechanics in infants using the occlusion techniques to ensure that valid results are obtained. These guidelines cover numerous aspects including: 1) terminology and definitions; 2) equipment; 3) data acquisition; 4) data handling and analysis; 5) reporting of results. Adherence to these guidelines should ensure that measurement of passive respiratory mechanics in infants in different lung function laboratories could be performed with an acceptable degree of safety, precision, and reproducibility. This will facilitate multi-centre collection of data and performance of clinical investigations.
