Spirometry

In Occupational settings, spirometry can be used to establish a baseline before assigning a worker to a job task which is physically demanding, that may require use of respirator, or may expose the worker to respiratory hazards.

The measuring of breath is the most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for generating pneumotachographs, which are helpful in assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

Testing

The spirometry test is performed using a device called a spirometer, which comes in several different varieties. Most spirometers display the following graphs, called spirograms. We have a team of trained and experienced in-house spirometry technicians who perform our spirometry screening.
