PFT spans an array of tests. However, they share a common goal: measuring how well your lungs work. Some tests measure air flow, while others measure lung volumes, the adequacy of gas exchange in the lungs, oxygen saturation, and endurance. These tests are valuable not only in disease diagnosis but also following disease activity and response to treatment. Dr. Luis Chug proudly offers a full range of PFT options.
Dr. Chug might recommend pulmonary function testing if you’re:
- Experiencing respiratory problems
- Regularly exposed to dangerous substances at work
- Living with a chronic respiratory problem such as asthma or COPD
You might also benefit from pulmonary function testing if you’re preparing to undergo surgery.
