Faculty of Medicine
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.
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.
If you need an appointment for testing please contact our department line (+94) 3132780
