Lung Function Testing
We offer lung function testing in multiple locations across Victoria.
The lung function laboratories are staffed by trained respiratory scientists who can perform a variety of tests to assist in the investigation of lung disease.
Patients breathe into a machine which measures various aspects of breathing capacity. Lung function testing is performed while seated and does not involve exercise.
GP’s and specialists are able to refer directly for a variety of lung function tests including:
- Gas transfer measurement
- Measurement of static lung volumes
- Mannitol bronchial provocation testing
