PFT

PFTS are also known as spirometry or lung function tests. These are a group of tests that measures the working conditions of lungs. it detects lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. this information helps pulmonologist to diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders prevailing in the body.

When a patient is referred for PFT’S, it means that a battery of tests may be carried-out including:

  • Simple screening spirometry,
  • Static lung volume measurement,
  • Diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide,
  • Airways resistance,
  • Respiratory muscle strength and
  • Arterial blood gases.
