Prior to your pulmonary function test, do not eat a heavy meal and, if you are a smoker, do not smoke for four to six hours prior to the test. Specific instructions will be given if bronchodilators or inhaler medications should be withheld. Sometimes, medications will be inhaled during testing.
Please call at least 48 hours before your appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Reschedule the test if you are coming down with a cold or the flu.
A COMPLETE PULMONARY FUNCTION TEST TAKES APPROXIMATELY 45 MINUTES TO 1 HOUR TO COMPLETE.
