Respiratory Functions Testing

At present, service function is limited to patients referred by Physicians of near-by hospitals. The laboratory has trained technical officers (Mrs. Himali Abeykoon, Mr. S.W.B. Konara) provide assistance in testing respiratory functions and handling equipment according to ATS/ERS standards, under the supervision of Dr. A. Kariyawasam.


Clinical services:

We offer spirometry for adults for diagnostic, routine and preoperative assessment, limited to patients from hospitals. Clinical Respiratory function testing is done routinely on Wednesdays from 8:00am to 12:00 pm, but on other days on special requests. The tests are reported by a Physiologist along with machine generated output. Please ensure that you book an appointment in advance and prepare the patients before you send them for the test.
