Pulmonary Function Tests

This test is performed by breathing into an instrument that can record the amount and rate of air that is inhaled and exhaled over a period of time. Some tests are obtained by normal breathing and others require forced breathing. The test is used to evaluate the lungs prior to surgery or to diagnose certain type of pulmonary disease.
