Have you ever had a full lung function test?
Asthma WA and Respiratory Testing Services are working together to provide lung function clinics to the people of Western Australia. This comprehensive set of tests is offered with no out of pocket expenses.
What’s involved in lung testing?
The tests are easy to perform and cover spirometry, lung volume, diffusing capacity. They are a collection of breathing manoeuvres which are done whilst sitting in a chair. The results help in telling whether your airways are working properly, how big your lung capacity is, and how well they do their main job of transferring oxygen into your blood.
There is also a test that may tell us whether your medication is effective, or strong enough.
Even if you have had spirometry, you can still book in for this service!
