Pulmonary Function Testing

TMC's Pulmonary Function Lab provides valuable information to diagnose and assess pulmonary diseases. Lung function tests, also called pulmonary function tests or PFTs, evaluate how well the lungs work. The tests determine how much air a person’s lungs can hold, how quickly the air can move in and out of the lungs, and how well the lungs put oxygen into and remove carbon dioxide from the blood. The tests can diagnose lung diseases, measure the severity of lung problems and check to see how well treatment for a lung disease is working.
