Pre and Post Bronchodilator Spirometry


What is it?

This test allows for an understanding of your lung functions and whether there is any bronchospasm present which can be treated with inhaled medicines.

How is it done?

This test is split into two halves. The first is a breath test that measures your breath capacity under normal conditions. We will then administer a medicine by inhaler and repeat the breath test.


Generally no preparation is needed but we will let you know if in your case there are special circumstances. If you are already using inhalers, we may ask you to withhold them on the day of testing.
