Held on: 18 – 19 August 2011

logo_physiologyIt is with great pleasure that the UCT Lung Institute hosts the second Lung Function & Exercise Physiology Symposium in collaboration with The University of California (UCLA) and Professor Chris Cooper [ autobiography].

This interactive course is lectured by some of the leading authorities in lung physiology such as Prof Cooper and UCT’s own Professor Eric Bateman. The 2-day series of lectures and interactive sessions is focused on practical interactive small group demonstrations with time afforded to candidates interacting on a personal level with the course lecturers. Furthermore, sessions will be dedicated to the practical interpretation of lung physiology and exercise testing results.

The pertinent teaching goals of the symposium includes:
  • Greater understanding of lung and exercise physiology
  • Explanation & demonstration of principles of exercise physiology and testing
  • Practical demonstration of lung physiology measurement including Spirometry, peak flow monitoring, whole body Plethysmography
  • Interactive demonstrations of exercise testing using both cycle ergometer and treadmill
Who should attend the symposium?
  • General physicians with an interest in pulmonology and exercise testing
  • Pulmonologists
  • Exercise Physiologists
  • Pulmonary Technologists
