PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) laboratory located at The Chest Clinic is one of its kind, equipped with the latest diagnostic and evaluation technology. Our PFT lab offers a broad range of pulmonary diagnostic tests, convenient for patients as they are able to receive a complete treatment in one place.
Early diagnosis of some lung associated disorders is difficult, because a routine medical examination is often not detailed enough to catch the signs. Even as these ailments progress, their signs are misleadingly similar to those of other conditions, making it difficult to understand the actual level of pulmonary impairment.
To make an accurate diagnosis, a doctor will explore a patient’s medical and family history, enquire about any symptoms and also conduct a physical examination. Several tests and specialized exams may be required to diagnose a lung disorder, identify the likely cause and gauge the severity of the condition.
Tests may include:
- Body Plethysmography
- Lung Diffusion Capacity
- Bronchial Provocation Test etc.
All of the above and more are available at our PFT lab.
In addition to this, there are certain things you can do today. It’s never too late to make healthy lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, cutting down on salt and sugar and choosing a healthy diet. These changes can help prevent pulmonary malfunctioning and fight worsening lung conditions.
