What are the different types of lung function tests? | Pulmonologist in Mumbai | Dr. Parthiv Shah

The various types of lung function tests are as follows:

Spirometry: This is the most common PFT test. This procedure is used to determine how much air you can breathe in and out of your lungs. Spirometry can measure the speed with which air can be blown out of the lungs as well as the amount of air exhaled.

Body Plethysmography: This procedure determines how much air is present in the lungs when you take a deep breath. The test also measures the volume of air remaining in the lungs after completely exhaling.

Lung Diffusion Capacity: This test determines how successfully your lungs transfer oxygen into your bloodstream.
