Respiratory Tests

Respiratory tests and services include:

  • Pulmonary Function Testing- used to assess lung mechanics and gas exchange efficiency and to classify respiratory impairment and help guide therapy options.
  • Oxygen Studies- a number of separate tests designed to evaluate oxygen level in the blood, heart rate response to exercise, or a patient's perceived shortness of breath on exertion. These studies can be used as a quick and simple assessment of patient conditioning.
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation- a number of services which include patient education and conditioning for patients experiencing breathing difficulties.
