Cleveland Clinic’s Pulmonary Function Testing Laboratory offers the most advanced technology for diagnosing and monitoring lung diseases. Staffed by pulmonologists, respiratory therapists and technicians, we screen patients at risk for lung disease, evaluate their symptoms and the effect of lung disease on lung function, assess the value of respiratory treatments, and monitor for reactions to drugs that are known to damage the lungs. We ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during the testing process.
