Pulmonary Function Testing is performed to assess lung function and gas exchange. A variety of breathing maneuvers are performed with the coaching of a Respiratory Therapist. A Bronchial Provocation Test is performed to assess the sensitivity of your airways.
To book a Pulmonary Function Test or Bronchial Provocation Test have your Doctor fax this requisition to our Patient Scheduling Department and you will be called for an appointment shortly.
What to expect:
- Avoid taking your inhaler for four hours prior to the test.
- Bring all your inhalers that you are currently using.
- If at all possible please refrain from using nail polish.
- If you have had recent eye surgery/procedure, please consult your eye specialist to confirm whether or not this test can be performed.
