  • Asthma
  • Cardiopulmonary arrest

Respiratory therapy is actively involved in assisting physicians with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of pulmonary conditions in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Therapists perform simple spirometry, complete pulmonary function testing, pre- and post-bronchodilator spirometry, and bronchoprovocation studies. Some common pulmonary and respiratory tests include:

  • Pulmonary exercise stress test
  • Pulmonary function test
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Spirometry
