Pulmonary Function Testing

Pulmonary function testing is one of the basic tools for evaluating a patient's respiratory status. In patients with suspected pulmonary disease, it is often the first diagnostic test employed in the work up. Pulmonary function tests (PFT's) are also used for pre-operative evaluation, managing patients with known pulmonary disease, and quantifying pulmonary disability.
