service offered at St. Mary's Hospital
St. Mary’s Hospital is now offering Pulmonary Function Studies.
Pulmonary function tests help measure the different aspects of the lung function and can help determine the cause of shortness of breath and may help confirm lunch diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, or emphysema. The tests are also used to measure how a lung disease is progressing or how serious the lung disease has become. Pulmonary function tests can also be used to assess how a patient is responding to different treatments.
Testing can be done locally at St. Mary’s Hospital without having to travel out of the area.
Contact your physician for a referral or call Chad Rye, Respiratory Therapist, at St. Mary’s Hospital, 208-962-3251 x2271 for further information.
