Pulmonary testing is a common medical test that can be required in some occupational injury events or to monitor or diagnose a medical condition. Pulmonary tests relate to the lungs and can measure lung performance, capacity and determine if damage to this sensitive organ has occurred. One of the most frequently used pulmonary tests is spirometry, which is a measurement of the capacity of the lungs and how swiftly air can be inhaled and expelled. This is an easy, and fairly risk-free, test to determine the health of the lungs.
