Spirometry Testing

Spirometry Testing
Spirometry Testing- You will be instructed how to perform spirometry. Basically, you will take in a deep breath and blow into a mouthpiece attached to the spirometer. You will blow out as hard and as fast as you can until your lungs feel absolutely empty. You will be asked to repeat the test several more times until there are two to three good efforts. You will be coached and encouraged to do your best during the test. A good effort during the test is important to get good results.
