Brandon and the two providers Stephanie and James had the BEST bedside manners with my 4yo son as he was examed and swabbed. The care is second to none, we were in and out in under an hour as walk-ins, and registration is always a breeze! Thank you P1UC!

Wonderful experience! Came here for a diabetes (blood sugar) test for my mother. It was a very short wait time. We came 6 minutes before the appointment, the estimated wait time after checking in was 6 minutes, and we were taken in for the test in about 4 minutes after check in. We will definitely return to this location.

This has to be the nicest, cleanest, most professional lab facility I have ever been to. I went in around lunchtime, expecting delays and lots of impatient people. What I experienced was far from this. The assistant, was very professional and courteous. There were two other patients and they handled each of us with respect and due diligence. I plan on coming to this location for ALL my lab work in the future! Plus, I have been recommending this place to all my friends and colleagues.

Latest Pulmonary Function Test Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)
Oct 28, 2022
Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks, reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season, according to data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (NBC News)

Pulmonary Function Test FAQs

  • What is a pulmonary function test?

    A pulmonary function test determines how effectively the lungs are functioning. The test assesses lung volume, capacity, gas exchange, and rate of flow, among other parameters linked to lung function. Your doctor may be able to use the results to identify and treat some lung problems.

  • How are pulmonary function tests performed in Connecticut?

    Depending on the information your doctor is looking for, pulmonary function tests can be done in two ways. Your doctor may order both tests in some circumstances since they measure distinct things. Your doctor may use a spirometer (a device with a mouthpiece) or have you stand inside an air-tight box that looks like a telephone booth to test your breathing.

  • What does a pulmonary function test measure?

    A pulmonary function test assesses a number of aspects of lung function. These are some of them:

    • Total lung capacity is the volume of the lungs when they are completely full with air.
    • Forced vital capacity is the amount of air you can forcefully evacuate once your lungs have been completely filled.
    • The amount of air left in your lungs after you've exhaled as much as you can.
    • The amount of air left in your lungs after you exhale normally is known as functional residual capacity.
  • How much does a PFT test cost in Connecticut?

    The cost of a pulmonary function test is determined by a number of factors, including the type of test you've had, whether you've had one or both tests, where you've had your test done, and if you have health insurance. A pulmonary function test without insurance might cost anywhere from $340 to $830.

  • Does insurance cover PFT testing in Connecticut?

    Your pulmonary function test may be covered at 80 to 100 percent of the entire cost if you have health insurance. A note from your doctor stating that the test is medically essential may be requested by your insurance provider. Whether or not you have a copay and whether or not you have reached your deductible may affect how much you pay out of pocket. Contact your insurance carrier if you have any questions regarding your personal insurance plan's coverage.

  • Who should get a pulmonary function test in Connecticut?

    A pulmonary function test may be ordered for a variety of reasons. They're sometimes done as part of a standard physical examination. They may also be essential for persons who work in particular areas, such as coal mines, where the risk of lung disease is higher. A pulmonary function test may be ordered by your doctor to assist diagnose allergies or lung disorders such as asthma, bronchiectasis, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis.

  • How do I read pulmonary function test results?

    Understanding lung function and the typical values for each function assessed is required when reading pulmonary function test results (total lung capacity, forced vital capacity, residual volume, and functional residual capacity). Your doctor will go through your test findings with you and let you know if there are any irregularities that should worry you.

  • How long does it take to get PFT test results in Connecticut?

    It takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete the test. A pulmonologist, a specialist who specializes in lung diseases, will need to review the results. After that, the findings will be transmitted to the doctor who requested the test on your behalf. When your findings are ready, you will meet with your doctor for a follow-up appointment to review them.

  • How can I book a pulmonary function test through Solv?

    With Solv, scheduling a pulmonary function test is simple. Type the word "pulmonary" into our website's search box. You'll notice a pulmonary function test choice emerges. Click the search icon after entering your address or selecting the option to utilize your current location. You'll find a list of providers in your area as well as appointment times that are available. Choose the best location and time for you, then fill out the form to arrange your appointment.

  • Can I do at-home PFT testing?

    Some lung function tests can be done at home. These employ a peak flow meter to measure airflow, which you blow into. These tests are usually prescribed for those who have been diagnosed with a lung ailment and need to check their airflow on a regular basis. If you're having trouble breathing or have other signs of a probable lung condition, such as pain when breathing, shortness of breath, or chronic coughing, contact a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Connecticut Pulmonary Function Tests

A respiratory therapist or other certified pulmonary expert usually performs a pulmonary function test. A spirometer, which is a device with a mouthpiece, is used in one test, while an air-tight enclosure is used in the other. You may be referred to a specialist if your doctor determines that you require a pulmonary function test.

The following symptoms may necessitate a pulmonary function test:

  • A cough that lasts for at least 8 weeks
  • Even after little or no exercise, you may experience shortness of breath.
  • For a month or more, you've been coughing up mucus
  • Wheezing and coughing up blood
  • Chest discomfort that persists
  • Respiratory infections are common.

To prepare for your pulmonary function test, take these steps:

  • Do not eat a large lunch right before the test.
  • 6 hours before your test, don't smoke.
  • 6 hours before your test, don't do any strenuous exercise.
  • On the day of your exam, stay away from coffee.
  • Wear loose clothing that does not obstruct your ability to breathe.
  • Wear your dentures for your test if you have them.
  • 8 hours before the test, stop using any inhalers.
  • Don't take any ants with you.

You may feel dizzy or lightheaded at times during the test since it requires some quick and forced breathing. If you need to take a break, let your healthcare professional know. You may be exhausted following the test and require some rest.

If your results show that you have a lung problem, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you, which may include pulmonary rehabilitation, medication, or oxygen therapy. Lung health can also be improved by changing your lifestyle. For lung health, quitting smoking, having a nutritious diet, exercising frequently, and getting enough quality sleep are all essential. Furthermore, staying hydrated might help thin mucus in your lungs, making it easier to cough out.
