Respiratory Diagnostics is a branch of medicine that specialise in diagnosing respiratory diseases. The specialist use lung function tests such as spirometry tests to check the patient’s lungs and breathing. The test measures the patient’s lung volume, capacity, gas exchange and the lungs rates of flow.
Lung conditions are put into two categories: Obstructive lung diseases where its difficult to let all the air flow out of the lungs or exhale, and Restrictive lung diseases where the lungs have difficulty expanding enough, which causes difficulty filling the lungs with air.
