The health care professional at the NIOSH-approved facility must inform the miner if the spirometry shows abnormal results or if the respiratory assessment suggests he or she may benefit from the medical follow-up or a smoking cessation intervention.

(b) NIOSH will notify the miner of his or her spirometry test results, a comparison between current and previously submitted spirometry tests (if available), and will advise the miner to contact a health care professional as appropriate based on the results.
