Pulmonary diagnostic examinations are used to determine abnormalities in air-flow and lung mechanics. These abnormalities can occur during ventilation, distribution, diffusion and perfusion. Our comprehensive examination assesses lung volumes, capacities, mechanics and dynamic flows, plethysmography, airway resistance, diffusion and serial arterial blood gas studies.
Cardiopulmonary Stress Testing is another specialized examination to quantify exercise work capacity and design exercise prescriptions for pulmonary rehabilitation.
Bronchoprovocation is used to assess the extent of airway irritability not normally found in routine diagnostic studies.
