What is Spirometry?
Spirometry is a simple, straightforward breathing test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions, most commonly COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) by measuring how much air a patient can exhale in one forced breath.
It is also helpful in monitoring the severity of some other respiratory conditions and the lungs’ response to treatment.

The breathing tests are carried out using a device called a Spirometer, which is regularly used by trained healthcare professionals in both Primary and Secondary care settings.
