Lung Function Testing

The following tests are available at Allergy West in our office located at 133 Littleton Road, Westford, MA.

Spirometry

Spirometry is a common test used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and certain other conditions that affect breathing. Spirometry may also be used periodically to check how well your lungs are working once you’re being treated for a chronic lung condition.

NIOX

Exhaled nitric oxide is a gas that is produced by inflamed airways. Airway inflammation is one of the hallmarks of asthma. NIOX measures exhaled nitric oxide, and tells us how much inflammation is currently present in a patient’s airways.
