Using the high altitude simulation test (HAST)

Will your patient with lung disease become hypoxic at high altitudes? Can you clear them to fly? In this video, you'll learn about the physiologic basis for, and the interpretation of, high-altitude simulation tests that are used when assessing patients who are planning commercial air travel.

Take a deep dive into our Pulmonary Function Testing Essentials course today and learn all about additional pulmonary function tests that you can use to supplement routine measurements. You'll learn when to use spirometry in your daily clinical practice, what tests to order, and how to interpret results. Things like lung volumes, spirometry, diffusing capacity, bronchodilator responsiveness, and obstructive and restrictive patterns will become second nature once you’re done with this course.
