Objective methods of diagnosis are vital in confirming cases of occupational asthma
and serial tests provide a low cost and effective solution.
What is OASYS?
OASYS (Occupational Asthma expert SYStem) is free to use software that has proven
to be a sensitive and expert tool for detecting work related changes in peak
expiratory flow readings. OASYS has been developed by
Midlands Thoracic Society
and is available for download from their website.
This simple to use system combats many of the difficulties associated with visual
analysis of records: it also supports effective asthma management and provides
validated evidence for occupational asthma related insurance claims.
