This is a diagnostic test that helps to give a more accurate diagnosis of whether a patient has asthma or a chronic lung disease. It is also valuable for monitoring how severe a chronic lung condition may be. Spirometry testing is available at both surgeries with Vicky, Polly or Karen. If you are to have a spirometry test we request that prior to your appointment you do not :
- Use a reliever inhaler for 4 hours prior to testing
- Drink alcohol
- Eat a large meal
Please read the downloadable Patient Information Leaflet for further information before attending for your appointment.
