Spirometry

Spirometry is a test that can help diagnose various lung conditions. It measures the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled.

Spirometry is also used to monitor the severity of some other lung conditions, and their response to treatment

Your doctor will determine if spirometry is appropriate for you.

Iron Infusions

People who suffer from iron deficiency anemia and do not respond to, or cannot tolerate, oral iron therapy may benefit from an intravenous iron infusion.

Your doctor will determine if an iron infusion is appropriate for you.
