Shortness of breath or chronic cough may be caused by a disease of the lungs.
The so-called “spirometry” is a lung function test and is also performed on an outpatient basis in practice with us.
In this study, the amount and speed of air inhaled and exhaled by the lungs and the bronchi is measured.
Spirometry is an important method for assessing asthma, COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung fibrosis.
It is a non-invasive and painless test and may even be done on children who are old enough to understand instructions carried out.
