      Services The Lung Health Business Clinic Offers:

      1. Lung Function Tests (Spirometry)

      In New Zealand there is a responsibility for businesses to determine if there are significant risks to their employees who are exposed to hazardous dust, fibers or other substances.  

      In addition, businesses and employers need to decide whether a health monitoring programme is required for their workforce where it is deemed exposure to a hazardous substance may result in an impact on lung function.

      In both of these situations, the use of a Lung Function Test (also know as Spirometry) can be used.

      Spirometry measures the amount of air a person can inhale and exhale and the speed at which they can do so.

      Spirometry tests are performed to evaluate lung conditions and provides valuable information about lung capacity, airflow obstruction, and other parameters that can help monitor respiratory conditions.
