The Pulmonary Function and Respiratory Physiology Laboratory, part of the Airway & Exercise Physiology Research Laboratory, specializes in COPD research from pediatrics through geriatrics and houses a multitude of spirometers, oscillometers, body plethysmograph equipment for measuring spirometry, lung volumes, diffusing capacity, and bronchodilator challenge to assess lung function. Our facilities include clinical and research subject encounters, interviews, resting ECG’s, and blood and sputum samplings. Moreover, physical performance tests such as the six-minute-walk-test, hand grip strength test and short-physical-performance battery can be assessed. The lab is highly-experienced in multicenter trials using PFT and has acted as the primary reading and quality control site in many clinical trials.
