Lung function testing has evolved over the years from a tool purely used for research and is now a commonly utilised form of clinical investigation. This new book is clear, concise and easy to read, providing both the essential scientific information as well as focusing on the practical aspects of lung function testing. The book is designed so that different chapters can be read as stand-alone. LUNG VOLUMES To gain further information on your lung health, another group of tests your physician may order as part of pulmonary function testing are Lung Volumes. Below are brief descriptions of eight separate volumes of air, which are measured during lung volumes testing. (See Figure 2).File Size: KB.

  Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are a group of tests that measure how well your lungs work. PFTs are also known as spirometry or lung function : Janelle Martel.   As a postgraduate revision text it will add to trainees’ knowledge of lung function tests, but it should not be relied upon to teach all the associated physiology. At the reasonable price of £, this book will find a place in the pockets of the white coats of many trainees in respiratory : J.G. Hardman.

Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the pulmonary function tests (PFTs). It measures lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is helpful in assessing breathing patterns that identify conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and : D Different pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are used to evaluate the physiologic processes of the respiratory system. Physiologic abnormalities that can be measured by pulmonary function testing include obstruction to airflow, restriction of lung size, and decrease .

Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breathe out in one forced breath. It's carried out using a device called a spirometer, which is a small machine attached by a cable to a mouthpiece. Lungs Structure and Function.

The lung is a branching system of tubes and air sacs. Air enters the nose and mouth and is directed in the throat to the trachea which carries the air in the chest. The trachea splits into two major bronchi, one for each lung.Pulmonary Function Tests are a diagnostic tool used for detecting, characterizing and quantifying the severity of lung disease.

Routine testing may also be done to monitor the course of disease and also response to treatment and medication in chronic patients.Pulmonary function tests, or PFTs, measure how well your lungs work.

They include tests that measure lung size and air flow, such as spirometry and lung volume tests. Other tests measure how well gases such as oxygen get in and out of your blood.
