Lung Services

A pulmonary function test is a simple and completely painless test performed here in our facility. The test takes on an average of 25 to 30 minutes and involves a series of breathing exercises designed to measure lung capacity.

Many lung diseases such as asthma, COPD, and pulmonary fibrosis are associated with characteristic patterns of abnormality on the pulmonary function test. In the past most lung diseases required a biopsy, the vast majority of lung diseases now can be properly diagnosed by careful history, physical examination, testing of pulmonary function, and interpreting chest x-rays and other radiographs.
