Brisbane North Lung Function lab

Facilities Available at our Labs

At the Holy Spirit Northside Hospital we provide facilities for the diagnosis and assessment of a variety of respiratory conditions, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), sarcoidosis and others.

Spirometry and Flow-Volume Loop tests are regularly performed using our state of the art, gold standard SpiroAir device from Ascencia/Medisoft, Belgium.

Static Lung Volume tests are also performed using either Helium-dilution or Body-box (plethysmograph) techniques.

Our facilities also provide testing for the rate of carbon monoxide uptake (KCO) and alveolar volume (VA) for the assessment of Gas Transfer (DLCO).  This test is used in the assessment of lung diseases such as emphysema and pulmonary fibrosis.

All equipment is maintained to the high standards of accuracy, precision and hygiene set by the American Thoracic Society (ATS) & European Respiratory Society (ERS) guidelines.
