Pulmonary Function Tests Dubai by Al Zahra Hospital

Pulmonary function tests are a broad range of tests that measure how well the lungs take in and exhale air and how efficiently they transfer oxygen into the blood.
Spirometry measures how well the lungs exhale. The information gathered during this test is useful in diagnosing certain types of lung disorders, but is most useful when assessing for obstructive lung diseases (especially asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD).

Lung volume measurement detects restrictive lung diseases. In this set of diseases, a person cannot inhale a normal volume of air. Restrictive lung diseases may be caused by inflammation or scarring of the lung tissue (interstitial lung disease) or by abnormalities of the muscles or skeleton of the chest wall. Testing the diffusion capacity (also called the DLCO) permits an estimate of how efficiently the lungs transfer oxygen from the air into the bloodstream.

6 Minutes Walk
The six-minute walk test is generally used at the start of a Pulmonary Rehabilitation program and/or in the evaluation of lung transplant. The results of the test are helpful in setting up an exercise program that designed to meet your needs. The object of this test is to walk for as far as possible for 6 minutes. You will walk back and forth on a flat surface such as a hallway. Six minutes is a long time to walk, so you will be exerting yourself. You will probably get out of breath of become exhausted. You are permitted to slow down, to stop, and to rest as necessary. You may lean against the wall while resting, but resume walking as soon as you are able.

Exhaled nitric oxide (eNO)
Can be measured in a breath test for asthma or other conditions characterized by airway inflammation. Nitric oxide (NO) is a gaseous molecule produced by certain cell types in an inflammatory response. The fraction of exhaled NO (FENO) is a promising biomarker for the diagnosis, follow-up and as a guide to therapy in adults and children with asthma.

Overnight Pulse Oximetry
Performed at night in a patient’s home, pulse oximetry is a simple overnight test that monitors a patient’s cardio-respiratory stability. This tool is used to check the oxygen level in a patient that is currently on Home Oxygen Therapy to provide their physician with current medical information on a patient’s condition. Overnight Pulse Oximetry can also be used to screen patients that may be suffering from sleep-disordered breathing or other respiratory disorders.
