The lung age assessment is carried out with a flow meter that detects the patient’s ability to exhale air from their lungs. This assesses the potential presence of any airway obstructions, the subject’s predisposition to the development of chronic pulmonary diseases and provides an indication of the lungs’ age. The test is non-invasive and takes just a few minutes. The assessment is carried out via the forceful and continuous exhalation of air from the lungs, providing repeatable results and indications for the necessity of more extensive tests, such as spirometry. This test is an appropriate tool for the prevention of diseases related to the obstruction of the airways.
This indicates the volume of air exhaled during the first second of the test.
This indicates the volume of exhaled air during the sixth second of the test.
The ratio, expressed as a percentage of the volume of air exhaled in the first second and the sixth second of the test.
This indicates the percentage of airway obstruction.
This indicates the classification of any Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease present.
This indicates the age of the lungs, based on all the parameters measured during the test.
