View Full Version : Spirometry - COPD10

Looking to see what others do...
There seems to be no way to record when spirometry cannot be done due to:
- patient refusal
- clinically inappropriate, i.e. recent MI, aneurysm, etc

The only way to exempt from this one indicator seems to be to exempt from all of COPD.

Has anyone else had a problem with this or I am missing something?

The read code 8I2M means spirometry reversibility contraindicated if that helps and does not effect the other copd indicators on our system (exeter)

Thanks I will give it a go
I just can't see that the code will be accepted for QOF. Pop Manager on emis has the codes you can use to accept/exclude and this isn't mentioned.
I have given it a go with one patient and I'll see what happens overnight
Thanks a lot for your reply
