Spirometry

SubUrban Icon Spirometry

Key Objective of Spirometry

Classification of obstructive(asthma, COPD), restrictive(interstitial lung disease, hyperpneumonitis, idiopulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis or autoimmune) and mixed defects disease(bronchiectasis, emphysema) can be determined through well-performed spirometry testing that is conducted with reliable, high-quality instruments, well-trained clinicians and healthcare professionals.

Key Indicators of Spirometry

Suburban Diagnostics assures professional and expert care for patients throughout the spirometry and reversibility testing procedures. Spirometry is recommended for patients with symptoms of exertional dyspnea, dyspnea at rest or a non-responsive, chronic or a recurring cough. We also offer spirometry in corporate health packages for asymptomatic cases conducted with reliable, high-quality instruments, well-trained clinicians and healthcare professionals.

Spirometry: The Clinical Utility
  • The diagnosis, monitoring and prognosis of obstructive and restrictive lung disorders and disease
  • The guidance and planning of medication and therapy procedures for patients
  • Measuring the capacity of a patient’s lungs and airways if they experience breathlessness, have reduced exercise tolerance, are smokers, have any history of upper and/or lower respiratory tract infections or have a family history of lung disorders
  • Determining the lung capacity in people at high altitudes or those opting to run a marathon or other physically demanding circumstances

While simplified curves and charts can distinguish between obstructive and restrictive disease, the measurements and diagnosis of less common restrictive disorders or mixed conditions often require more sophisticated pulmonary testing. The results will be interpreted by a trained practitioner and a pulmonary function specialist who will together facilitate diagnosis and treatment.
