Special Testing: PFT and Sleep

We are pleased to offer pulmonary function tests (PFTs) at Chestnut Hill, breathing tests to measure how well your lungs are working. The most common lung function test is spirometry, which measures the amount of air your lungs can hold and how long it takes to exhale.

Our Sleep Disorders Center includes pulmonary and neurology Sleep Medicine physicians. We offer overnight and daytime sleep laboratory studies at our main Sleep Lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham and also at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton. We also offer home sleep studies for our patients.
