Spirometry is helpful in assessing breathing patterns that identify conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and Chronic obstructive airways disease (COPD). The pattern of breathing is recorded in form of graphs which is interpreted by a specialist doctor. Spirometry tests are by appointments only
