Due to low air quality, New York City is currently experiencing a serious health crisis. The worrying amounts of contaminants in the air endanger the respiratory health of its citizens. The necessity for reliable techniques to assess and monitor lung function becomes important in such a severe circumstance. This is where breathing tests come in handy.
Spirometry is a simple yet effective diagnostic method for the assessment of breathing. It measures how much air a person can take and exhale forcibly, as well as how quickly they can do it. This test gives vital information regarding the lungs, allowing healthcare providers to detect and monitor respiratory diseases, especially in cases where the patient has underlying asthma, emphysema, or allergies.
Please speak to your MOM physician if you have any respiratory issues and they can help guide you through this current health crisis.
