The spirometry test measures lung function. Performance of a maximal inhalation (breath-in) and exhalation (breath-out) through a spirometer apparatus provides valuable data on how the lung moves air in and out of your body. The values of this test can be analysed to identify pre-existing lung conditions or provide a baseline lung function values for long term surveillance.
Lung function can be affected by many environmental factors such as exposure to pollutants, allergens, viruses (like COVID-19), or dusts. Alternatively, lung function may be compromised by several disease states such as Asthma, COPD, or Obesity.
Determining your lung function allows our professionals to guide you on strategies to keep your lungs safe and optimally functioning throughout your life.
