Pulmonary Function Test
Pulmonary Function Test (Spirometry) for Your Workplace
There are a number of occupational hazards that may cause issues with lung function, including a lack of oxygen or increased exposure to particulates, dust, or chemicals.
Employers can do their best to protect employees by conducting a pulmonary function test that will measure how effective protective equipment is and help the employer make appropriate safety adjustments.
Entrust AOS to Conduct Your Pulmonary Function Test
Also called spirometry, the pulmonary function test gauges how effectively the lungs are able to inhale and release air and move oxygen into the body. You may find a pulmonary function test useful if you need to:
- Monitor the effectiveness of your respiratory safety equipment
- Assess whether an employee is able to fulfill a strenuous role at your company
- Monitor the effects certain substances have on the lungs
At AOS, our pulmonary function test involves taking an individual’s blood pressure, documenting their past exposure to substances as well as their health history, and establishing their current lung function by assessing lung volume and expiration velocity. The staff at our nationwide clinics are trained in spirometry to ensure accurate results.
