Recent data indicate that clinicians and researchers should dismiss the myth that preschoolers are unable to perform spirometry. Reproducible, acceptable flow-volume curves are possible in this age group; however, modifications to the ATS/ERS adult criteria are critical due to physiologic differences. Reference data is available and the clinical applicability of this technique is being evaluated.
