U.S. Department of Labor Report of Ventilatory Study Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation Note: This report is authorized by law (30 U.S.C. 901 et. seq.) and required to obtain a benefit. The results of this interpretation OMB No. 1240-0023 will aid in determining the miner’s eligibility for black lung benefits. Disclosure of a Social Security number is voluntary. The Expires 10/31/2014 failure to disclose such number will not result in the denial of any right, benefit, or privilege to which the claimant may be entitled. This method of collecting information complies with the Freedom of Information Act, the Privacy Act of 1974, and OMB Circular No. 108. Instructions: Any ventilatory study must include tracings of flow versus volume (flow-volume loop) as part of the reported test. If the spirometer used for this test cannot provide a flow-volume loop, indicate this fact in item 10. Submit three tracings of the flow-volume loop which displays the entire maximum inspiration and the entire maximum forced expiration, and three tracings of the volume versus time (spirogram) derived electronically from the flow-volume loop. Identify each tracing with the patient’s name and social security number/DOL Claim Number. Report the results of the FEV1, the FVC and the FEVI/FVC ratio (expressed as a percentage). If a bronchodilator is administered, report the values obtained both before and after bronchodilation and explain the significance of the results obtained in item 10. Measuring and reporting the MVV is optional. If the MVV is measured, submit two tracings of the individual breath volumes versus time if the MVV values obtained are within 10% of each other; otherwise, submit three tracings. The MVV results must be obtained independently, rather than calculated from the FEV1. Complete instructions and standards for administration of these tests may be found in 20 CFR Part 718, Subpart B, 718.103, and Appendix B, and are summarized on Form CM-2954a. 1.
