Anyone wishing to arrange a screening may call 316-5800 to schedule. No physician order necessary and the screenings are self-pay only. After a physician interprets the tests, the results are mailed to the client. The client can then take the results to their physician. For questions contact 540.316.2605.

Respiratory offers both therapeutic and diagnostic procedures and testing to patients with breathing problems. The therapeutic procedures include all aspects of bronchodilator therapy, oxygen therapy and mechanical ventilation on patients of all ages, with respiratory problems or conditions. The diagnostic procedures in this area are complete pulmonary function testing with body plethysmography , cardiopulmonary stress testing, arterial blood gases, home oxygen assessments, methacholine challenge studies, and heliobacter pylori breath testing. A new test offered the pulmonary function lab is FeNO, which is a test to diagnose asthma, evaluate a chronic cough, or see how well your medications are treating your asthma. Comparing FeNO results over several visits can be an effective way to make sure you’re getting the right medications in the right amounts to keep you breathing. A respiratory therapist will guide the patient through the FeNO test in our pulmonary function laboratory.  All diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are performed with state-of-the-art equipment.
