The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) believes it is prudent to suspend spirometry testing, unless it is determined to be clinically essential, due to the significant risk of transmitting COVID-19. As a result, our Occupational Medicine Clinics will suspend the following services until the pandemic is under control and it is safe again to proceed.
- Mask fit, regardless of type of respirator and regardless of whether the employee can bring their own respirator for fitting.
- Pulmonary function testing/spirometry (annual, required surveillance)
- Any examinations that require the above testing as a component of the exam, i.e. silica, asbestos and other medical surveillance
