Lung Function Department Freeman Hospital

 

 Lung Function  Department performs breathing tests in adults and children, and sleep studies in adults. There is a separate sleep unit specifically for children which is based in the ENT Department.  Patients can attend as inpatients from a ward or from home as an outpatient.Breathing tests determine how much air your lungs can hold, how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs, and how well your lungs add oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from your blood.  The test results can be used to help diagnose lung diseases and measure the severity of lung problems. They can also be used to assess the effect of medication and to measure progress in the treatment of disease.Sleep studies monitor what happens to your breathing during sleep to find out what is causing your sleep problems.  More detailed tests are done in the hospital and simpler tests at home.
