Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breathe out in one forced breath.

Why spirometry is carried out

Spirometry can be used to help diagnose a lung condition if you have symptoms, or if your doctor feels you're at an increased risk of developing a particular lung condition.

If you've already been diagnosed with a lung condition, spirometry may be carried out to check the severity of the condition or see how you're responding to treatment.
