Lung volumes measurement is considered part of Pulmonary Function Testing. It is the measurement of multiple air volumes during different times of the breathing cycle. There are multiple diseases that can decrease lung volume. These diseases are called collectively Restrictive Lung Diseases.
There are many reasons to have a restrictive lung disease. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, and hypersensitivity pneumonia, to name a few.
At TruDoc Medical Pulmonary Functions Testing laboratory, we perform lung volumes using body plethysmography and comply with highest standards of the and Association of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Division Directors (APCCSDD) and the American Thoracic Society (ATS).
