Pulmonary Function Testing

Testing Your Lung Function

Your doctor may refer you to our accredited Pulmonary Function Lab for testing to diagnose and/or manage your respiratory disease. These tests measure how well you can breathe and the amount of oxygen your lungs deliver to the rest of your body.
