Pulmonary Function Test (PFT): A Straightforward Breathing Test for Lung Assessment
Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is a straightforward and non-invasive breathing test designed to evaluate your lung capacity. If you are suspected to have lung obstruction or restriction, or if there is a need to differentiate between breathlessness caused by lung or heart conditions, a chest/lung specialist may order this test.
The PFT provides valuable information regarding the severity of the lung disease by grading its extent. Additionally, it serves as a useful tool in monitoring the progression or improvement of the lung condition over time.
