Spirometry: Has Both Good and Bad Aspects of Usage
You might have heard about Spirometry, the most common lung function test that measures the volume of air exhaled versus time. But have you ever thought about its downsides? Here, we are discussing a few.
Spirometry testing in a primary care setting significantly improves early identification of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to the results of a prospective trial published in the April issue of Chest.
Great, but the downside is that it is overused. When you forcefully breathe in or out, you often tighten up the entire chest wall, and that helps risk or maintain restricted or sub-optimal breathing.
