EKGs and Lung Function Testing

...are two important diagnostic tests performed by Dr. Bhat at his office. EKGs (Electrocardiograms) are a diagnostic tool Dr. Bhat uses to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as any signs of heart disease, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart, such as a pacemaker. 

He uses lung function tests (Spirometry) to measure how well your lungs work.  The lung function tests measure how much air you can take into your lungs, how much air you can blow out of your lungs and how fast you can do it, how well your lungs deliver oxygen to your blood and the strength of your breathing muscles.  Lung function tests help to diagnose conditions such as asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and other lung conditions.  Especially in smokers, this test is extremely valuable.
