Pulmonary & Respiratory Care

Pulmonary Function Test

Pulmonary Function Testing is available at The Outer Banks Hospital using Body Plethysmography, otherwise known as Body Box testing.  Body Box studies help diagnose respiratory disease including asthma, pulmonary fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The test is simple and painless, only requiring the patient to sit in an airtight booth and blow into a mouthpiece.
