In brief: Spirometry

Compliance and many other aspects of lung function can be measured in children with PFTs (pulmonary function tests) using a spirometer. The child has to be old enough to follow directions.
You will find this piece of equipment in a pediatric pulmunology or allergy/immunology office. Why do you ask?
