How COPD is diagnosed?

March 17, 2022
Spirometry, the most common test, includes blowing into a large tube connected to a small machine to assess how much air your lungs can hold and how rapidly you can expel it. Other procedures include lung volume and diffusing capacity measurements, a six-minute walk test, and pulse oximetry.

Spirometry is a basic test that determines how well your lungs function. You blow air through a mouthpiece and tubing connected to a small machine for this test. The machine monitors how much air you can blow and how quickly you can blow it out. Spirometry can detect pulmonary disease  symptoms before they appear and can make living with COPD easier.Ensure your lung health with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld.
