Asthma/COPD testing

In order to test for Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), pulmonary function testing with and without treatment is critical in determining whether or not there is evidence of bronchopulmonary disease. This involves taking deep breaths and breathing out as fast as possible into a spirometry machine. If there is evidence of obstruction (the inability to get air out of the bronchopulmonary tree), treatment with a bronchopulmonary dilator (such as Albuterol) is typically administered, and testing it repeated to determine if the obstruction is reversible (in the case of Asthma) or does not respond to treatment (as would be in the case with COPD).
