SUPPLEMENTARY TESTS

WHAT TESTS WILL WE PERFORM?

In the consultation we carry out complementary tests indicated by your pulmonology specialist doctor to achieve a better diagnosis. We detail them below:

Pulse Oximeter.jpg

Pulse oximetry

Sat O2 + FC

Non-invasive procedure, which determines the percentage of oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in blood and the heart rate of a patient with the help of photoelectric methods.

It consists of placing a clamp on a patient's finger. Preferably without enamel.

Sleep Apnea Diagnostic medical device Ki

Respiratory polygraphy

Snoring and sleep apnea

It allows evaluating the presence of apneas, snoring and oxygen saturation during the night for the diagnosis of SAHS (Sleep apnea and hypopnea syndrome).

A nurse will give you instructions on how to place the machine. It is done at the patient's home. Includes follow-up visit and report.

Nitric oxide test

FeNO

It is used to assess the degree of inflammation of the airways. The test involves measuring the level of nitric oxide in exhaled air.

The test involves asking the patient to perform a sustained exhalation through a mouthpiece and must maintain air flow within ranges that appear on a digital display .

DM-2021-Consulta Respira-028-72ppp.jpg

Complete respiratory functional tests.

Lung Volumes.

Pulmonary Diffusion and letismography.

Test performed to determine lung capacity and the degree of disease involvement of the patient. It measures the gas exchange in the lungs and evaluates how oxygen passes from the lungs into the blood.

Cooximetry

CO CHeck

Test that determines the level of carbon monoxide ppmCO (concentration of  carbon monoxide per million) in the exhaled air from the lungs. It allows us to obtain results that are easy to interpret, which will allow us to work with smokers, obtaining great awareness.

Forced spirometry

FVC + FEV1 + FVC / FEV1

Lung function study, which measures respiratory volumes and flows, that is, the ability to accumulate air in the lungs and to move it.

The test consists of requesting the patient to perform a forced exhalation through a single-use mouthpiece with a bacterial filter.

CPAP

Continuous Positive Pressure in the airways.

Once the presence of apneas or a high number of snoring has been confirmed, a test is performed to assess the adaptation and effectiveness of the treatment using CPAP.

A nurse will give you instructions on how to put on the machine. It is done at the patient's home or in consultation.

Bronchoprovocation tests

Induced by effort

The objective of this test is to check whether after doing physical exercise (running on a treadmill), bronchial size decreases and assessing lung function before and after exercise.

The patient should run at a fast pace for about 6-8 minutes from start to finish.

A forced spirometry will be performed and HR will be measured before and after.

ECHO

Thoracic Ultrasound

Non-invasive, rapid painless test, in real time that is performed in the same doctor's office.

It is used to assess injuries or alterations such as (consolidation, pleural effusion, lung edema and pneumothorax).

Its main advantages lie in the absence of ionizing radiation in the patient.

Electrocardiogram

ECG

Test that records the electrical activity of the heart that occurs with each beat.

The patient is placed in the supine position and consists of applying electrodes to the heart area and clamps on the 4 extremities, all connected to a wiring system to receive the patient's cardiac record on a screen.

Walking test

6 minutes

Test that allows to measure tolerance to effort and to assess if there is any degree of limitation.

It consists of measuring the maximum distance that a person travels on a flat surface in a time of 6 minutes.

Blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation will be taken before and after as well as assessing the degree of dyspnea on exertion.
