ATS/ERS Guidelines list pulmonary function testing (PFT) within one month of myocardial infarction (MI) as a contraindication, based on expert opinion. This retrospective review of 136 patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery identified 21 patients who had PFTs despite MI in the preceding month (MI + PFT group). The MI + PFT Group had zero incidence of MI or serious cardiac arrhythmia between PFTs and surgery. Comparison of post-operative outcomes between the MI + PFT Group and all other CABG patients showed no significant differences. In this small sample size, PFTs appear safe within one month of MI.

Although reduced lung function and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with higher risk of death following cardiac surgery, preoperative spirometry is not performed routinely. T...
Pulmonary function tests (PFTs), including spirometry with and without post-bronchodilator (post-BD) testing, are frequently performed in the assessment of asthma, along with other obstructive airway ...

An indolesulfonic acid that is used as a dye in renal function testing and as a reagent for the detection of nitrates and chlorates and in the testing of milk.
The detection of genetic variability (e.g., PHARMACOGENOMIC VARIANTS) relevant to PHARMACOGENETICS and PRECISION MEDICINE. The purpose of such genetic testing is to help determine the most effective treatment options and their optimum dosages with least potential risks for DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS.
