Pulmonary Function Testing

Providing respiratory therapy with the latest pulmonary function testing technology available.

What is a Body Plethysmography?

A body plethysmography helps measure the functional residual capacity (FRC) of the lungs. Functional residual capacity (FRC) is the volume of air present in the lungs at the end of passive exhale, and monitoring the FRC can help determine certain respiratory illnesses. Low or high FRC volume typically indicates some form respiratory disease.

Patient Comfort and Convenience

We offer the largest usable patient space of all available plethysmographs. Those with mobility challenges access the cabin simply by turning and sitting-there's no need to "step up" or twist to enter.
