Did you know that a pulmonary function test can diagnose various types of lung disorders and identify causes of shortness of breath?
In addition, the test can be performed on healthy individuals as part of their routine physical. The pulmonary function test is performed using a spirometer, advanced equipment that measures the amount of air a patient exhales and inhales. The test is non-invasive and simple. The patient breaths in and out of the mouth piece on the spirometer and may inhale a substance to yield certain results. The test only takes an hour to complete and your Concierge physician can review the results with you shortly thereafter. If you are having any symptoms of shortness of breath or simply want to ensure your lungs are functioning properly, visit My Concierge MD for a pulmonary function test!
