Aim of the program
Spirometry is a type of lung function test that measures lung capacity to see if it is within normal limits. We offer pre and post salbutomal (ventolin) testing as well as base line spirometry testing. At Colac Area Health this testing is carried out by a physiotherapist.
Anyone. However, you will require a health professional or medical referral.
Young children under 5 years of age may be excluded if they cannot carry out the test accurately.
