Spirometry: What Is it and Why Do I Need It?
Spirometry is a quick, simple, and easy breathing test for your doctor to evaluate your lungs. This test measures how fast and how much you can blow out of your lungs. Spirometry can be used to identify if you have a lung disease, determine the condition of your lung disease, and check if the medications you take for your lung disease are helping. Talk to your healthcare provider today to see if you should get a spirometry test.
