Facilities

Apart from basic tests of hematology, biochemistry and radiology Asthma Bhawan is equipped with following specialized testing facilities:


Spirometry

Test to measure obstruction in airways. Useful in Asthma, smoker’s lung disease COPD and ILD.


Diffusion Testing

It measure diffusion of gases across alveolo-capillary membrane. Useful in assessment of ILD.


Body Plethysmogram

It measure airway resistance. Sensitive measure of severity of asthma.


Sleep Testing

Many people snore loudly and there is cessation of respiration for few seconds called apnea. Apnea episodes can lead to reduced oxygen in the body to cause a disease known as obstructive sleep apnea. It is usually a disease in obese patients. Symptoms include irritability, forgetfulness, morning headache and day time sleepiness. Untreated disease lead to occurrence of hypertension, stroke, heart attack and sudden death. Polysomnogram or sleep test records breathing, heart rate, oxygen saturation, EEG and leg movement during sleep to diagnose OSA. People with above symptoms should get themselves tested.


Bronchoscopy

It is endoscopy of airways. It is useful in diagnosis of lung cancer or foreign body lungs.


Pleurocentesis

When fluid is filled in the pleura it should be aspirated. Chemical analysis reveal causal factor of the disease. TB is most common cause of the disease.


Histamine Challenge Test

When patient of asthma is normal or in remission then histamine challenge test make diagnosis of asthma. Increasing dose of histamine is administered by nebulizer which causes contraction of airways in patients of asthma while in normal person airways does not contract.

Hypoxia Challenge Test

Patients of respiratory diseases when go to high altitude then they suffer from reduced level of oxygen in the body. This test can diagnose vulnerable people before hand so that trip to places of high altitude can be avoided or proper precautions can be kept.


Skin Prick Testing (SPT)

When allergic patient is exposed to an allergen, it can  trigger the disease. SPT can make diagnosis of allergic trigger factors. Small amount of allergen is instilled in the skin and the site is observed after 10-15 minutes. If there is swelling and redness at that site it confirms the causal allergen. Patient should not be on many medicines including antiallergic medicine, antidepressant etc.


Drug Allergy Testing

Small amount  of drug is injected in the skin and if weal and flare are formed allergy to that drug is suspected. It is very accurate for drugs such as penicillin but for other drugs it gives only a crude idea.


IGE Based Blood Allergy Testing

Though less accurate than SPT but in some conditions such as small children, in presence of skin diseases and patients on anti histamine treatment these provide an alternative.


Burchard Pollen Counter

This equipment catches environmental pollens and measures pollen load and types of pollen. It is a useful information of susceptible
