Lung function testing is vital to discovering potential lung disorders such as asthma. The spirometry lung test allows us to measure the amount of air a person can get in and out of their lungs. This is the typical lung function tests and most children and adults over the age of 5 are capable of performing it. The spirometry lung test is an effective way to determine if we should be worrying about asthma or other lung disorders.
Another type of test the allergists and immunologists at Arcadia Allergy & Asthma perform is the exhaled nitric oxide measurement or the eNO. This allows us to determine whether or not the breathing tubes inside your lungs are inflamed, which can be a clear sign of asthma. It is also capable of telling us if you need a certain type of medication in order to reduce the inflammation.
