Pulmonary Function Testing is an evaluation of the respiratory system that aids in helping employers to eliminate exposure to airborne hazards. Not only does baseline and periodic testing prevent health problems, it also saves your company from paying for preventable workers compensation costs. Testing may be mandatory for certain hazardous environments.
Testing begins with the completion of an exposure and health history questionnaire for assessment by our nurse. The participants blood pressure will then be taken to ensure the testing can safely be performed. After these two steps are completed, the Spirometry testing will begin. The participant will be expected to perform three acceptable tests in order for the testing to be complete.
