Lung Function Testing Q&A

What is lung-function testing?

Lung-function tests, also called pulmonary-function tests, are noninvasive diagnostic procedures that evaluate how well your lungs work. Testing can identify underlying lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Why would I need lung-function testing?

You might be a candidate for lung-function testing at Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates if you have lung-related symptoms like:

  • Wheezing
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic cough
  • Shortness of breath

You might also need lung-function testing if you’ve smoked, have an abnormal chest X-ray, or need monitoring for an existing lung disease.

The providers review your medical history and symptoms to determine which tests you need. They offer on-site lung-function testing so that you don’t have to travel elsewhere to get the answers you need about your health.

Lung-function testing at Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates is noninvasive and requires no downtime.

For spirometry and lung-volume tests, you breathe into a device as you follow your provider’s instructions.

Based on your test results, our providers customize a care plan to treat the root cause of shortness of breath, wheezing, and other lung-related symptoms. They offer comprehensive care for conditions like allergies and asthma to protect your long-term lung health.
