Book Now

Pulmonary Function Tests are often done to check the functionality of the lungs. These tests are non-invasive and measure lung capacity, lung volume, rates of flow, and exchange of gases. Pulmonary Function Tests can be done with two different methods. They are  Spirometry and Plethysmography. These two methods may also be combined to gather information as per the need of your Pulmonologists. 

 

In the Spirometry Pulmonary Function test, we use a device with a mouthpiece hooked to an electronic device. 

In the Plethysmography Pulmonary Function test, the person stands on a square-looking air-tight box to complete the tests.

 

The data collected through PFTs include 

  • Tidal Volume
