German term or phrase: Spiro-BP
From list of examination findings.
Three consecutive tests performed are
Spiro-BP
Spiro-BH
Spiro-Ergometrie

It is clear that we are talking about a Spirometry test, but I can't find any information which subdivides the test into BP and BH.
Spiro-Ergometrie is easy to work out, but the others....

If it helps, the parameters listed under Spiro-BP are: VCmax, FEV1, TLC

Under under Spiro-BH: DLCO/VA
