To adequately supply oxygen to your entire system, your lungs need to work effectively. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing, thereby depriving cells throughout the body with the oxygen they need to work properly.
Our team of experienced physicians conducts pulmonary functions tests to screen for asthma, COPD, emphysema and other pulmonary conditions. These simple tests measure lung capacity, the rate of air flow and the level of air pressure. Some patients may require additional, extensive testing for more serious conditions. These tests enable our physicians to determine the best treatment alternatives to improve patient quality of life. Genetics, infections and history of tobacco use are responsible for most lung diseases.
