Lung assessments for asthma and breathing conditions

If you suffer from consistent respiratory problems such as shortness of breath, talk to our doctors at Mall Medical Centre about spirometry.

A spirometry is a simple and painless test to assess how well your lungs work. It is able to measure how much air you can inhale and exhale and how quickly you can do so.

We use a spirometry test to aid in diagnosing asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other conditions that affect breathing. It also helps our doctors to assess and monitor:
  • Disease severity
  • Respiratory symptoms
  • Suitability for scuba diving
  • Occupational health impacts
  • If a medicine is working effectively
  • Pre-& post pulmonary rehabilitation
Adults and children over the age of 6 years old should have a spirometry test at least every 1–2 years, or more frequently if required. Talk to our Alice Springs doctors about booking a lung assessment today.
