Spirometry Test in Pune
Dr. Sneha Tirpude - Consultant Pulmonologist
What is Spirometry Test?
Spirometry is a lung test procedure that is used to assess how well a person’s lungs are functioning. It measures the volume of air that is inhaled and exhaled by the lungs during various breathing manoeuvres. Spirometry can help to diagnose as well as monitor lung conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and interstitial lung disease. Preoperative lung risk assessment is also assessed using a spirometry test.
At our spirometry test service, we use the latest equipment and techniques to provide accurate and reliable results. We will guide you through the test and answer any questions you may have.
During the test, you will be asked to breathe into a spirometer (i.e into a single time use mouthpiece with a filter) which is attached to a software specialised to sense the lung volumes, which is a device that measures the volume of air that is inhaled and exhaled by the lungs. The spirometer will record your lung function by measuring the amount of air you can inhale and exhale, the rate at which you can inhale and exhale, and the time it takes for you to exhale.
Can we eat before the test?
You need to have meals and perform the test so that you are blowing with good force.
Any information to provide before doing the test?
It is important to document the patient’s smoking history and any recent illnesses that could potentially affect the test results. For optimal results, patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous physical activity for at least 30 minutes, consuming large meals within 2 hours, drinking alcohol within 4 hours, and smoking within 1 hour prior to the testing.
The results of your spirometry test will be interpreted by Consultant Pulmonologist Dr Sneha Tirpude. The report will include your lung function measurements and an explanation of what the results mean for your health.
If the results of your spirometry test show that you have a lung condition, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. This may include medications, lifestyle changes, or other interventions to help manage your symptoms and improve your lung function.
