Pulmonary Testing

At Northwest Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, we are experienced in the diagnosis of breathing and lung disorders including asthma, COPD, emphysema, and pneumonia. For patients admitted to the hospital for treatment, our providers will be with you every step of the way through intensive care unit management to discharge.

The following tests are all commonly used to diagnose breathing problems:

  • Pulmonary function tests such as spirometry and peak flow
  • Cardiopulmonary stress testing
  • Chest X-ray
  • Six-minute walk test
  • Bronchoscopy (lung exam through a scope) with and without biopsy
  • Thoracentesis (lung fluid drainage)
  • Metabolic cart (measures oxygen consumption and energy expenditure)
