Pulmonary function tests in infants have been used for many years, but they have been largely relegated to specialized centers and research purposes. More recently, development of commercial equipment and newer techniques has allowed for more broad use and application of these tests. This review describes different techniques that have been used to study infants and toddlers, and their clinical applications.
