The various types of testing include the measurement of air flow velocities, total lung capacity and how well your lungs transport oxygen into your blood stream.
Pulmonary Lung Function Testing (PFT)
A complete pulmonary lung function test takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes to complete. You will be asked to breathe into a tube called a spirometer that records the amount of air and the rate of air breathed over a specific period of time. The test may include before and after taking certain medications.
