Lung tests

Make an enquiry

Our mix of lung function tests tells us a lot about how healthy your lungs are. Pulmonary function tests check for conditions like asthma, allergies, obstructive lung disease, lung cancer and more. A Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin (CDT) blood test can help to pick-up the early signs of lung cancer if you’re worried there may be a risk.

We’re here for:

Checking for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

If you smoke, or used to smoke over a long period of time, you might be at risk of developing lung cancer. A spirometry test or CDT blood test helps to detect signs of lung cancer, so we can put a treatment plan in place as soon as possible. We use the EarlyCDT®-Lung Test to help pinpoint the risk and signs of lung cancer even earlier. A peak flow test or spirometry can be used to test your symptoms for COPD – and we’ll be there to support you with the results and putting a plan of action in place if needed to help ease symptoms with treatment and lifestyle changes.

A lung function test gives us, and you, a complete view of how your lungs are functioning. We look at everything, from your lung capacity, to how quickly you can blow air out of your lungs, and we’ll also look at how strong your diaphragm is.

If you’ve been experiencing problems to do with your breathing, or you’ve developed a cough that’s been going on for longer than normal, come and see us. We might need to send you for a spirometry (lung function) test to see what’s causing your symptoms. Your results will be with us soon after, and we’ll then be able to get you back on the path to getting well, and living well.

Monitoring lung conditions

If you’ve been diagnosed with a lung condition, and you’re receiving treatment, regular lung function checks can tell us how your lungs are responding. A lung function test may also let us know what stage the condition has reached.

Spirometry and peak flow tests.

A peak flow test and spirometry lung function test is used to check symptoms of wheezing, coughing, breathlessness and a tight feeling in your chest for signs of asthma. A peak flow test measures how fast you can breathe out to see how easily the air flows in and out of your lungs while a spirometry test looks at how fast and long you can breathe out for with one deep breath.
