Pulmonary Testing

flu shots

Pulmonary function testing has come into widespread use since the 1970s. This has been facilitated by several developments. Because of miniaturization and advances in computer technology, microprocessor devices have become portable and automated with fewer moving parts. Testing equipment, patient maneuvers, and testing techniques have become widely standardized throughout the world through the efforts of professional societies. Widely accepted normative parameters have been established. In a spirometry test, you breathe into a mouthpiece that is connected to an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the amount and the rate of air that you breathe in and out over a period of time.

 

Why the Test is Performed

Pulmonary function tests are done to:

  • Diagnose certain types of lung disease (especially asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema)
  • Find the cause of shortness of breath
  • Measure whether exposure to contaminants at work affects lung function.
  • Assess the effect of medication and to easure progress in disease treatment
