Addenbrooke's services

The Lung Function Unit undertakes a number of physiological assessments to aid with the diagnosis of respiratory abnormalities, to monitor responses to interventions such as medicines or chemotherapy or to assess the risk to undergo certain procedures such as surgery or bone marrow transplants.

The unit provides a wide range of diagnostic tests to both outpatients and inpatients referred to the service. The main tests include assessment of the size of the lungs, how efficiently they exchange gases such as oxygen and how fast they can blow the air out.
More advanced tests are also conducted.
