“Our commitment to you is the comprehensive care you receive”
The Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) Unit at Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital strives to offer the most comprehensive diagnostic services to patients suffering from a wide spectrum of pulmonary diseases. We have an ultra-modern Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) laboratory that is equipped with advanced equipment and state-of-the-art technologies which is used to perform a range of tests for diagnosing and monitoring lung diseases.
Pulmonary function testing is a non-invasive way to find out how well your lungs are working by measuring various parameters of lungs such as lung volume, capacity, rates of flow of air, and gas exchange. Results obtained from these tests are used by our doctors to diagnose and decide the treatment for certain lung disorder.
We have a team of highly experienced and trained pulmonologists, respiratory therapists and technicians who evaluate the condition of each patient in a multidisciplinary pattern and offer an effective treatment plan according to his/her unique medical needs. We make sure that every patient undergoing PFT feels comfortable throughout the process.
