All non-essential PFT suspended...

March 17, 2020 > August 01, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution, the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine has recommended that all non-essential pulmonary function/spirometry (PFT) testing be suspended during this time. This coincides with recent guidance from OSHA.   

As such, all HASC/Global Health locations will cease to offer pulmonary function testing for the foreseeable future. 

This will NOT affect the ability to register and undergo respirator fit testing or to receive a respirator clearance letter (MEQs). 
In lieu of a PFT service, a respirator medical clearance service will be added to all trainees/patients undergoing a respirator fit test, which will allow for a medical clearance letter to be generated. 
The safety and health of our trainees/patients are of the utmost concern, and we will continue to offer services in adherence to the recommendations of local and federal health authorities and agencies.
For any questions, please contact customer service at 281-476-9900 ext. 338.
