A simple test to help identify people who may have lung disease. The Pulmonary Lung Function Test is performed by a Registered Respiratory Therapist and includes:

    If you have any of the following problems you should consider having a Pulmonary Lung Function Test:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling like you are not getting enough air
  • Decrease ability to exercise or do other activities
  • A cough that won’t go away
