Pulmonary Function Test

Pulmonary Function Test

Pulmonary function tests are a group of breathing exercises that measure the function of the lungs, revealing problems in the way a patient breathes. These tests can determine the cause of shortness of breath, and may help confirm lung diseases such as asthma, bronchitis or emphysema. The pulmonary function tests also are performed before any major lung surgery.

Pulmonary function tests can help a doctor diagnose a range of respiratory diseases, which might not otherwise be obvious to the doctor or the patient. The tests are important since many kinds of lung problems can be successfully treated if detected early.
