It is a group of tests that are used to examine the functionality of the lungs. It also involves examining the breathing is normal or not and whether the lungs are able to supply oxygen to the entire body properly or not. Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is commonly known as Lung Function Testing.

  • Respiratory infections
  • Allergies
  • Bronchiectasis: when the airways in lungs widen and stretch
  • Pulmonary tumor

  • Scleroderma: it affects connective tissues
  • Asbestosis: exposure to asbestos
  • Chronic bronchitis

The types of Pulmonary Function Tests

  1. Spirometry: It usually measures the amount of air you inhale and exhale.
  2. Plethysmography Test: It looks for the lung volume i.e., the volume of gas in the lungs.
