Lung Function Evaluation
The Pulmonary Function Lab performs a range of tests to evaluate lung function. These include spirometry, pre- and
post-bronchodilator studies, lung volumes, plethysmography, diffusing
capacity, Oximetry, 6-minute walk tests, MIP/MEP, Methacholine challenge,
Arterial puncture for ABG, Hypoxic Altitude Simulation Testing, and
Cardio-Pulmonary stress testing.
The Pulmonary Function Lab also provides education and consultation in the
areas of pulmonary physiology and pulmonary function testing to medical
students, housestaff, fellows in training and staff physicians.
