What is spirometry and pre- and post-bronchodilator testing?
Also known as: spirometry and pre and post.
Spirometry is a common breathing test that measures the maximum force of a patient’s breath after inhalation and exhalation. Patients with asthma or other breathing problems may perform spirometry pre- and post-bronchodilator in order to examine the effectiveness of the medication on their breathing problems.
