COMPAIR: A Comparison of Clinic-based Versus Home-based Spirometry, Study Now Fully Completed

Updated: Sep 5

Our multi-site clinical research trial to assess spirometry tests performed in our research centre to ‘remote’ spirometry tests that patients can conduct at home, with guidance and assessment from research staff, has now finished, with the study fully recruiting to target.


The final patient completed their last visit earlier this month.


The data for the study is currently being analysed and we will hopefully have results in the next few months.


COMPAIR: A Comparison of Clinic-based Versus Home-based Spirometry

The trial was funded by AstraZeneca and is led by Professor Tim Harrison with co-investigators Dr Matthew Martin and Dr Ashish Pradhan from NIHR Nottingham BRC.


Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and The Rotherham NHS Foundation

Trust also recruited participants into the trial.










What is the purpose of the study?

The purpose of this study is to compare spirometry tests in the research centre to ‘remote’ spirometry tests that patients can conduct at home, with guidance and assessment from research staff. We would like to see how a group of participants with asthma and COPD perform spirometry on a portable device at the research centre and then at home.

We also want to ask your opinion about the home spirometry in this study, to ensure that it is a positive experience for future research participants.


This study is now fully completed
