Pulmonary Function Testing

Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is a complete evaluation of the respiratory system including patient history, physical examinations, and tests of pulmonary function. The primary purpose of pulmonary function testing is to identify the severity of pulmonary impairment. Pulmonary function testing has diagnostic and therapeutic roles and helps clinicians answer some general questions about patients with lung disease.

Spirometry measures wind stream By estimating how much air you breathe out, and how rapidly you breathe out, spirometry can assess an expansive scope of lung maladies. In a spirometry test, while you are sitting, you inhale into a mouthpiece that is associated with an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the sum and the rate of air that you take in and out over some undefined time frame. When standing, a few numbers may be somewhat extraordinary. For a portion of the test estimations, you can inhale typically and unobtrusively
