Spirometry is a simple and painless test that measures how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale. Spirometry is used to diagnose and monitor various lung conditions, such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, and fibrosis. It can also check if your current treatment is improving your breathing or if you need any adjustments. Spirometry is usually done in a doctor’s office or a respiratory laboratory, and it takes about 15 minutes to complete. You may need to avoid certain medications, foods, drinks, or activities before the test to ensure accurate results. You may also need to wear a nose clip and a mouthpiece to prevent air leakage. You will be asked to breathe normally and then forcefully several times into the spirometer. The highest value of three consistent measurements will be used as your final result. Your doctor will compare your result with normal values based on your age, height, sex, and race. Spirometry is generally safe, but it may cause some shortness of breath, dizziness, or coughing. It is not recommended for people who have had a recent heart attack or other heart problems. Spirometry is a useful tool to assess your lung function and health.
