Spirometry means "the measuring of breath". It is the most common of the pulmonary function tests (PFTs). Spirometry measures lung function - the volume and/or speed of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. It is used to diagnose and manage conditions that affect breathing such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and respiratory illnesses.
We are pleased to offer spirometry testing in the office for school age children.
