Spirometry Testing in Buffalo

Buffalo Spirometry TestingThe most basic spirometry test is what is known as forced volume vital capacity, (or FVC), and is administered using a spirometer. Our Buffalo spirometry testing is easily administered, and only takes a few moments. The patient is asked to breathe in as much as possible, and then exhale as hard as possible, for as long as possible, into the spirometer. The test results are then displayed as graphs, known as spirograms.  The spirograms display two distinct comparisons:

  • Volume-Time Curve: The x-axis displays volume, and the y-axis displays time.
  • Flow-Volume Loop: Displays the rate of airflow on the y-axis, versus the total volume of air inhaled, or exhaled.

Don't forget, we offer a variety of pulmonary testing, as well as many other health testing services.  With three convenient locations in the Buffalo area, we are always ready to serve you.  Also, our mobile health testing unit is able to perform many of our tests right on your job site.
