Spirometry and FeNO Testing

We are starting to invite patients for these two types of breathing tests, which can help with the diagnosis of asthma.

Spirometry is the main tool used to diagnose asthma. We can complete spirometry for any patient aged 18 and over.

FeNO is particularly useful to clarify the diagnosis compared to other lung conditions like COPD, and to ensure that treatments are working optimally. It is suitable from Age 8 into adulthood.

If you have received a message inviting you to have a either of these tests -some information about this is listed below.
