Pulmonary function testing (Spirometry)

The Spirometry provides information on the lung function.

The Spirometry is a medical procedure which provides a measurement and recording of lung volume and respiratory volume.

The patient has to breathe into a mouthpiece through the mouth while his nose is being blocked. The check includes measures of calm breathing, maximum exhalation and inspiration and forced breathing.

The treatment also contains a forced vital capacity (FVC) test, in which the patient has to inhale as fast and deeply as possible and then exhale in the same way.
Obviously, a successful examination also depends on the patient ‘s cooperation. Modern spirometry devices give measurement information directly after the treatment.
