1st choice is my go-to for COVID testing. They have a very efficient system for getting people in and out which is very appreciated. However, during my last visit my test was performed in the hallway and then I was left there in the hallway with no information about where to go or if I would be put into a room at any point to speak with a doctor. After waiting I was eventually brought to a room and was able to speak with the doctor. I felt as if he brushed off my symptoms and he offered no alternatives for what could be making me sick, he simply told me it probably wasn’t strep throat or COVID. I would have appreciated a better interaction with the doctor.

I had an appointment at 2:30 and wasn’t seen until 3:10. The nurses were kind but one of them tested me (for COVID) and walked out of the room with my nasal swap exposed and uncovered to take to their lab.

Latest Pulmonary Function Test Updates

Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)
May 31, 2022
COVID-19 hospitalizations are up 20 percent nationwide over the last 14 days, with 45 states and Washington, D.C., reporting an increase. Nationwide, COVID-19 cases increased 14 percent over the past 14 days, according to HHS data collected by The New York Times.

Pulmonary Function Test FAQs

  • What is a pulmonary function test?

    The effectiveness of the lungs is determined by a pulmonary function test. The test evaluates lung volume, capacity, gas exchange, and rate of flow, as well as other lung-related characteristics. Your doctor may be able to identify and treat some lung diseases based on the results.

  • How are pulmonary function tests performed?

    Pulmonary function tests can be performed in two ways, depending on the information your doctor needs. In some cases, your doctor may request both tests since they measure different things. To evaluate your breathing, your doctor may use a spirometer (a device with a mouthpiece) or have you stand inside an air-tight box that resembles a telephone booth.

  • What does a pulmonary function test measure?

    • A pulmonary function test evaluates several elements of lung health. Here are a few examples:
    • The volume of the lungs when they are entirely full of air is known as total lung capacity.
    • The amount of air you can forcefully expel once your lungs have been completely filled is known as forced vital capacity.
    • After you've expelled as much as you can, the amount of air left in your lungs.
    • Functional residual capacity is the quantity of air left in your lungs after you typically exhale.
  • How much does a PFT test cost?

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

  • Does insurance cover PFT testing in Detroit?

    If you have health insurance, your pulmonary function test may be paid for 80 to 100% of the cost. Your insurance company may want a note from your doctor stating that the test is medically necessary. The amount you pay out of pocket depends on whether you have a copay and whether you have met your deductible. If you have any questions about your personal insurance plan's coverage, contact your insurance carrier.

  • Who should get a pulmonary function test in Detroit?

    For a variety of causes, a pulmonary function test may be requested. They're sometimes performed as part of a routine physical exam. They may also be necessary for people who work in hazardous environments, such as coal mines, where the risk of lung illness is greater. Your doctor may conduct a pulmonary function test to help detect allergies or lung problems such asthma, bronchiectasis, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis.

  • How do I read pulmonary function test results?

    When reading pulmonary function test results, it's important to understand lung function and the typical values for each function examined (total lung capacity, forced vital capacity, residual volume, and functional residual capacity). Your doctor will go through the results of your tests with you and let you know if there are any anomalies to be concerned about.

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

    The test takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete. The results will need to be reviewed by a pulmonologist, a specialist who specializes in lung illnesses. The results will then be forwarded to the doctor who requested the test on your behalf. When your results are ready, schedule a follow-up visit with your doctor to go over them.

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

    It's easy to schedule a pulmonary function test with Solv. In the search bar on our website, type "pulmonary." You'll notice a pulmonary function test choice emerges. After entering your address or selecting the option to use your current location, click the search icon. You'll find a list of providers in your area as well as available appointment times. Fill out the form to schedule an appointment at the best location and time for you.

  • Can I do at-home PFT testing?

    Some lung function tests can be performed in the comfort of your own home. These use a peak flow meter, which you blow into, to measure airflow. These tests are typically given to those who have been diagnosed with a lung condition and need to monitor their airflow on a regular basis. Contact a doctor if you're having problems breathing or have other symptoms of a possible lung ailment, such as pain when breathing, shortness of breath, or chronic coughing.

Michigan Pulmonary Function Tests

A pulmonary function test is usually performed by a respiratory therapist or another licensed pulmonary expert. In one test, a spirometer with a mouthpiece is utilized, whereas in the other, an air-tight enclosure is used. If your doctor determines that you need a pulmonary function test, you may be sent to a specialist.

A pulmonary function test may be required if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • A cough that lasts for at least 8 weeks is considered chronic.
  • Shortness of breath can occur even after little or no exercise.
  • You've been coughing up mucus for a month or longer.
  • Coughing up blood and wheezing
  • Discomfort in the chest that does not go away
  • Infections of the lungs are very prevalent.

Follow these steps to prepare for your pulmonary function test:

  • Avoid eating a heavy lunch just before the exam.
  • Do not smoke for 6 hours before your exam.
  • Do not engage in any strenuous exercise for 6 hours before your exam.
  • Avoid drinking coffee on the day of your exam.
  • Wear loose clothing that won't get in the way of your breathing.
  • If you have dentures, put them on for the test.

Because the test necessitates some rapid and forceful breathing, you may feel dizzy or lightheaded at times. Let your healthcare provider know if you need to take a break. You might be weary after the test and need to rest.

If your results indicate that you have a lung disease, your doctor will talk to you about your treatment choices, which may include pulmonary rehabilitation, medication, or oxygen therapy. Changing your lifestyle can also help you improve your lung health. Quitting smoking, eating a good diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough quality sleep are all important for lung health. Additionally, staying hydrated might help thin mucus in your lungs, making it easier to breathe.
