Lung Function Test
The type of lung function test we offer here is called Spirometry. It is a simple inhalation and exhalation device connected to a computer soft ware programme that is capable to record and then analyse the findings. This is an objective test of lung capacity. It is convenient, non interventional and without any preparation.
The information provided aids clinician in differentiating types of chronic lung disease e.g. chronic obstructive type or restrictive type. It also provides good information about severity. As it is so readily available, it has become a routine diagnostic tool for patients with asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis or occupational lung disease.
