Spirometry is a specialised test of lung function. It is essential in the diagnosis and follow-up of respiratory disorders such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease, etc. It is also needed before major surgery in patients with respiratory diseases to assess the preoperative fitness for surgery.

The procedure essentially involves breathing through a mouthpiece into a pipe which is attached to the spirometer. The volume or flow of air being breathed is then measured and used to derive further values as illustrated in the following graph.

It is not at all painful. One only needs to blow out as hard and as fast as possible.

1. Bronchoscopy involves the introduction of a bronchoscope into the airways. A bronchoscope is a specialised endoscope for entering and imaging the respiratory tract. It is required for internal inspection of the respiratory tract and to obtain biopsies and other materials from the diseased parts. Important procedures commonly done with bronchoscopy include taking pieces of any growth or tumour in the airway for diagnostic purposes (endobronchial biopsy – EBB), taking pieces of lung tissue (trans-bronchial lung biopsy – TBLB) and taking samples from abnormally enlarged lymph nodes (trans-bronchial needle aspiration –TBNA). Bronchoscopy is especially required for the management of diseases such as lung cancer, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung diseases, etc.

No, it not an operation; it is an endoscopic procedure. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia.

Depending on the procedure required it usually lasts from 30 min to 1 hour.
