Performance of Lung Function Testing

Spirometery Testing

Spirometry testing is provided for any patient above the age of approximately 5 years so that the condition of the lungs can be monitored. It reveals any swelling, damage or spasms in the airways.

 

The test requires the patient to breathe in fully, seal the lips around the spirometer’s mouthpiece and immediately blow out as fast as possible until the lungs are empty.

 

Each test takes 30-60 seconds. The test will be repeated until three acceptable results are obtained.
