Title: Asthma & Lung Function Tests (Links to English resource)
Summary: If you have asthma, or are suspected to have it, you will need to have lung function (breathing) tests. These tests check how well your lungs are working and how asthma affects your breathing. Two types of breathing tests are used for asthma – spirometry and peak flow measurement.
