Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT)

Pulmonary function testing measures how well the lungs take in and release air and how well they move gases such as oxygen from the atmosphere into the body’s circulation.

Pulmonary function tests are done to:
  • Diagnose certain types of lung disease (such as asthma)
  • Find the cause of shortness of breath
  • Check lung function before surgery

PFTs are performed on all patients over five years of age at each appointment. For more information on PFTs and other types of pulmonary function tests, please use the links below.

While Pulmonary Function Tests are a common in-house test for our patients over five years of age, many other tests and procedures may be ordered by our providers to help diagnose and treat all patients seen at CRCCS.
