What is Spirometry?

Spirometry is a test used to accurately measure the amount of air you can breathe in and out of your lungs and how fast you can breathe that air out.  It is a painless procedure but it will require you to breathe as hard as you can which may make you breathless.

You will be able to rest in between each blow in order for you to get your breath back.

This leaflet has been designed for you to be well prepared for your test so that it is as easy and as useful as possible.
