About this clinic

The Pulmonary Function Lab provides lung function tests. These tests measure how well your lungs are working and diagnose lung disease. Trained staff measure your lung capacity and lung function with and without breathing medication. They do this using specialized equipment.

Tests can measure:

  • How much air goes into and out of your lungs
  • How much air goes from your lungs to your blood
  • How well your lungs work during exercise
