Pulmonary function testing

If you are having trouble breathing, your doctor may ask you to take a breathing test called a pulmonary function test. This test measures how well your lungs are functioning and the results will help you and your doctor find out what’s causing the problem.

Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT) help to diagnose lung conditions such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, and bronchitis. If you have already been diagnosed with a particular lung condition, a pulmonary function test can also determine how well your medication is working or if your condition is worsening.

After the test, the results will be interpreted by a pulmonary physician, scanned into your medical record, and made available to the ordering physician.

Six-minute walking test

This test monitors your level of exertion and your oxygen saturation level during exercise.

FeNO testing

A FeNO test measures the amount of nitric oxide that is in your breath. This quick test helps doctors tell if and how much inflammation you have in your airways.
