Patients suffering from respiratory problems will be booked in for spirometry to confirm a diagnosis. Those patients who are smokers and have a history of asthma may be checked to see if they are actually suffering from COPD which may require alternative inhaler therapy. If you are a asthma sufferer you may be offered spirometry to understand the severity of your symptoms. These appointments will take 30 minutes as a series of exhaled readings need to be taken.
