Wednesday, November 1st at 7 pm (CST) - Spirometry 101: What you need to know before you go for a breathing test
Almost everyone with breathing concerns will likely have a breathing test. Lung function tests, including spirometry can help diagnose lung conditions such as asthma and COPD, check the current conditions of the lungs, help discover the cause of shortness of breath or other lung related symptoms, check the effectiveness of medications, and help in making changes to prescriptions if necessary. Many patients do not know what to expect before their breathing test and how best to prepare. Find out everything you want and need to know about spirometry in this webinar.
