does anyone think glaucoma is a contraindication for spirometry?

Thanks

Yes, I always include glaucoma when I check if any contraindications to spirometry.

Depends. If well under control with meds/drops probably ok. If new glaucoma/ not controlled no. If in doubt ask for an opinion from their optician/consultant. Always best to delay and confirm ok and safe before proceeding. Interestingly I have had a few pts with aneurysms presenting for spiro recently. I contacted our loc al vascular nurse who advises that if the aneurysm is under 5.5 it is safe to proceed with spiro as this would not be big enough for treatment. I think we are going to see quite a few of these pts presenting with aneurysm screening in the future
