PFT

PFT (Pulmonary Function Tests)

PFT's are noninvasive (without injections or incisions) diagnostic tests that provide feedback about the function of the lungs. By assessing lung volumes, capacities, and rates of flow, PFT's provide information your physician can use to help diagnose certain lung disorders. Depending on what the results show, in combination with your medical history and a physical exam, your doctor may order further tests or a combination of medications and lifestyle changes.

PREP INSTRUCTIONS:

*Do not use your inhaler the day of your PFT Procedure.
