Complex measurement of properties of the respiratory system, including the lungs and respiratory muscles, that is performed:

(a) in a respiratory laboratory; and

(b) under the supervision of a consultant respiratory physician who is responsible for staff training, supervision, quality assurance and the issuing of written reports on tests performed; and

(c) using any of the following tests:

(i) measurement of absolute lung volumes by any method;

(ii) measurement of carbon monoxide diffusing capacity by any method;

(iii) measurement of airway or pulmonary resistance by any method;

(iv) inhalation provocation testing, including pre‑provocation spirometry and the construction of a dose response curve, using a recognised direct or indirect bronchoprovocation agent and post‑bronchodilator spirometry;

(v) provocation testing involving sequential measurement of lung function at baseline and after exposure to specific sensitising agents, including drugs, or occupational asthma triggers;

(vi) spirometry performed before and after simple exercise testing undertaken as a provocation test for the investigation of asthma, in premises equipped with resuscitation equipment and personnel trained in Advanced Life Support;

(vii) measurement of the strength of inspiratory and expiratory muscles at multiple lung volumes;

(viii) simulated altitude test involving exposure to hypoxic gas mixtures and oxygen saturation at rest and/or during exercise with or without an observation of the effect of supplemental oxygen;

(ix) calculation of pulmonary or cardiac shunt by measurement of arterial oxygen partial pressure and haemoglobin concentration following the breathing of an inspired oxygen concentration of 100% for a duration of 15 minutes or greater;

(x) if the measurement is for the purpose of determining eligibility for pulmonary arterial hypertension medications subsidised under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme or eligibility for the provision of portable oxygen—functional exercise test by any method (including 6 minute walk test and shuttle walk test);

each occasion at which one or more tests are performed
