The IRR Institute has Quark PFT device consisting of a real laboratory for pulmonary function tests. You can do the following:
Spirometry: execution of the main lung function tests.
Body plethysmography: “Gold Standard” examination for the measurement of lung volumes.
Diffusing Capacity test: to measure the diffusion capacity of carbon monoxide (CO) in the lungs.
Lung Volumes: alternative to plethysmography, using the “nitrogen Washout” technique.
Respiratory Mechanics: allows you to run tests for the evaluation of respiratory muscles, their strength and rigidity.
Forced Oscillation technique: evaluation of the mechanical properties of the respiratory system.
Occlusion technique: allows the measurement of airway resistance through the flow interruption technique.
Metabolic tests: measure the intrapulmonary exchange and ventilatory response of the patient during clinical exertion or at rest stress tests.
