How to prepare for your Pulmonary Function Test

  • Please call two working days prior to the test to confirm your appointment.

  • If this is your first test and you take Ventolin or Atrovent, please DO NOT take 6 hours before your test. If you take Flovent, Alvesco, Pulmicort, Arnuity or QVAR, you may take them before your test.

  • If this is your second or subsequent test, you may take your inhalers as prescribed.

  • For all other inhalers, please do not take for 36 hours before your test.

  • If you are having difficulty without your inhalers, please use only what is necessary.

  • No heavy meals 2 hours prior to testing.

  • No smoking 4 hours prior to testing.

  • We are a fragrance free facility. Please do not wear any perfume or colognes the day of your appointment.
