Understanding Spirometry: Assessing Respiratory Health for Better Well-being

Spirometry is a standard pulmonary function test used to assess lung function by measuring the volume of air entering and leaving the lungs with each breath. It provides valuable insights into lung health, aiding in diagnosing and managing various respiratory conditions. This non-invasive test involves measuring airflow and breath volume during specific breathing maneuvers. Spirometry is useful in diagnosing lung and airway diseases such as;

  • Asthma .
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Cystic fibrosis, and
  • Pulmonary fibrosis.

  • Track changes over time due to chronic lung diseases.
  • Detecting airway narrowing.
  • Identify early changes in lung function.
  • Guide treatment decisions, and
  • Assess the risk of respiratory complications before surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Spirometry is a lung function test that measures how well you can breathe and assesses lung health.

Spirometry helps diagnose and monitor respiratory conditions like asthma, COPD, and pulmonary fibrosis. It identifies airflow limitations and lung capacity.

During Spirometry, you breathe into a spirometer, which measures air volume and flow rates. The test involves inhaling deeply and forcefully exhaling into the device.

Your healthcare provider may recommend Spirometry if you experience symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, or if you have a history of smoking.

Typically, no special preparation is needed for Spirometry. However, it’s advisable to follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
