Asthma examinations

Pikkujätti offers a comprehensive selection of lung function examinations. Asthma examinations are painless to the child. As a standardized examination for school-aged children and adults, spirometry is used to measure changes in lung volumes.

Oscillometry is a standardized test to measure the resistance of air flow in the respiratory tract.

It is intended for younger children and is performed at Pikkujätti Tapiola. It can be performed on children as young as 3 or 4, but it is also suitable for older children. The above mentioned examinations are often combined with an exercise stress test performed under the surveillance of a doctor or a nurse.
