You get breathless? Are you a smoker? If yes, it's about time we tested your lungs.

A lung function test is the starting point for diagnosing lung disease. Get advice from a lung specialist.

A lung function test is a procedure for measuring lung and respiratory volume. The patient breathes forcefully through a mouthpiece into the "spirometer". The lung function test serves to investigate symptoms like breathlessness or cough. It is an important investigation for preliminary diagnosis and for ongoing assessment of lung diseases such as:

  • Airway disease (bronchitis, asthma)
  • Hyperinflation of the lung (COPD)
  • Interstitial lung disease
