What is Farnham Respiratory Network?

Our Respiratory Network’s Spirometry service provides diagnostic testing for patients with respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other lung disorders. Spirometry measures how much air you can breathe in and out and how quickly you can do so, providing essential data for diagnosing and managing these conditions.

How Farnham Respiratory Network can help you...

Spirometry is a critical service in respiratory healthcare, offering several benefits to patients.

Firstly, it can provide an early diagnosis of respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD. Early diagnosis can lead to prompt treatment, reducing the risk of complications and enhancing patients’ quality of life.

Secondly, spirometry testing provides a baseline of data that can be used to monitor the progress of respiratory conditions over time. It allows healthcare professionals to determine the effectiveness of treatment strategies and make necessary adjustments to optimise patient outcomes.

Moreover, spirometry can help patients better understand their condition. It provides tangible, quantifiable data about lung function, which can encourage patients to adhere to treatment plans and make beneficial lifestyle changes.

For individuals with occupational exposure to substances that can damage the lungs, spirometry can be used as a preventive measure. Regular spirometry tests can help detect early signs of occupational lung disease, enabling timely intervention.
