RESPIRATORY TESTING SERVICES

OUR TESTING


Our testing helps identify several respiratory conditions, including Asthma, COPD, Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis and Pulmonary Hypertension amongst others. We measure several things about your lungs not just spirometry, so we can differentiate between COPD (Bronchitis/Chronic Asthma) and COPD (Emphysema). Spirometry alone is unable to do that.

Full Lung Function Test

Differentiates between chronic asthma and emphysema and identifies those patients suitable for lung volume reduction.

Feno-Nitric Oxide Analysis

All tests are returned with a clinical report from a respiratory physician. This optimises patient treatment and local management. The report is then available for any telehealth sessions with metropolitan physicians reducing the time and financial burden of traveling to Perth

Bronchial Provocation

Assesses airways hyper-responsiveness and is a guide in the diagnosis of asthma. Useful in assessing a patient’s fitness to scuba dive.

Home Oxygen Assessment After 6 minute Walk Test

Determines whether supplemental oxygen will aid patients in cases of breathlessness.

High Altitude Simulation Test HAST

Determine whether patients with poor oxygenation will need supplemental oxygen when flying.

Spirometry

Basic diagnostic tool. Identifies potential restrictive or obstructive disease. Inspiratory loops can help assess vocal cord dysfunction.

Respiratory Muscle Strength

Useful in patients suspected of having respiratory muscle weakness, a weak cough or unexplained dyspnea.

Fitness to Dive

Assesses the respiratory fitness and suitability of prospective scuba divers. Asthma may be a contraindication for scuba diving.


We can also measure FeNO (expired Nitric Oxide) which helps differentiate between eosinophilic and non-eosinophilic asthma, guiding treatment, as well as identifying patients who are non-compliant with their medication regime.

Lung Test Client
Tyler

The technician was very encouraging and the device was very fun for him to follow, with all the games. Initially, I was worried that he would be afraid but he enjoyed the tests very much.

ABOUT US


Since 2006 Respiratory Testing Services has grown from 2 to 15 regular clinic locations plus additional clinics ‘by request’. Future clinic sites can be virtually anywhere. We carry out most of the respiratory tests available at the major teaching hospitals and we are the only source of such comprehensive testing outside the metropolitan area. Our referral base includes General Practitioners and Specialists (respiratory and other disciplines). Public and private hospitals including major teaching hospitals. All tests are returned with a clinical report from a respiratory physician. This optimises patient treatment and local management. The report is then available for any telehealth sessions with metropolitan physicians reducing the time and financial burden of travelling to Perth.
