Recent advances in technology have made it possible for use to measure neonatal pulmonary function, even in very small infants. Applying PM measurement as a tool for ventilator-patient management improves outcome in the NICU. With PFT in the laboratory, we can diagnose and determine severity of pulmonary illness and evaluate therapies through infancy and childhood. Although the task of safely measuring pulmonary function in infants can be daunting, there is no reason why more PFT labs should not offer services to these patients.
