WHAT IS PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTING?

  • Pulmonary function testing is a simple and fast way to accurately assess for COPD and asthma.
     

  • It helps your provider determine why you may be short of breath.
     

  • It also helps assess response to medications and therapy.
     

  • PFT's give valuable
    information during physicals, prior to any operations, or when you are actively short of breath.
