Lung Function Tests
Sarah-Jane Reid is a Clinical Respiratory Physiologist, specialising in a variety of lung function tests including Spirometry. She works closely with the Cardiac Physiologists and a number of specialist Consultants to provide a comprehensive Respiratory Service.
Sarah-Jane has a BSc in Clinical Respiratory Physiology and qualifications from the Association for Respiratory Technology & Physiology (parts 1 & 2)
The tests Sarah-Jane carries out are suitable for patients who have breathing difficulties, tohelp diagnose certain lung conditions like COPD or ILD. They are also used to monitor a response to drugs like a bronchodilator or steroids. As well as this, they can be used to monitor disease progression or to identify early changes in lung function that may require a change in treatment and to determine the patients ability to tolerate surgery and medical procedures.
