What Is Spirometry?

Read Transcript

It gives me critical information in terms of if you have asthma, what type of asthma and how you're responding to treatment.

It's very important to have lung function testing alongside other parameters to maximize your treatment and provide the smallest amount of medication at the right time to get the symptoms controlled.
