• Our pulmonary function and exercise lab acts as the testing lab for many UCDHS sponsored clinical research studies for new medications and treatments for lung disease and other chronic disorders. (ucdavis.edu)
  • They include tests such as spirometry and peak flow measurement. (mydr.com.au)
  • The evaluation of the work-relatedness of asthma in the exposed workers was based on serial peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) measurements and bronchoprovocation tests. (srce.hr)
  • Conclusions These results suggest that the EVH challenge is a highly sensitive challenge for identifying EIB in elite swimmers, in contrast to the laboratory and field-based exercise challenge tests, which significantly underdiagnose the condition. (bmj.com)
  • Exercise tests can show whether or how much your breathing problems are impacting on your daily life. (mydr.com.au)
  • Other tests available at respiratory departments in teaching hospitals include exercise testing, bronchial provocation tests (see below) and lung volume measurements. (mydr.com.au)
  • Exercise challenge test - where spirometry is done before and after exercising (e.g. using an exercise bike, walking or running on a treadmill or climbing stairs), to see if exercise triggers airway narrowing. (mydr.com.au)
