At Advanced Family Medical Care, we are pleased to offer our patients heart, lung, and vascular function evaluations and tests. These are intended to evaluate how well each of these is functioning under both normal circumstances and when placed under stress. By checking these functions, we can detect abnormal conditions which may indicate disease or illness.
For example, pulmonary function tests measure lung size, volume, airflow, as well as how well your lungs are exchanging gases like oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitric oxide. Cardiac evaluations may check the heart for proper valve function, heart murmurs, fluid buildup, blocked arteries, and hypertension, to name a few. The existence of any of these can help your doctor identify medical conditions such as coronary artery disease, thyroid gland problems, chronic high blood pressure, and many others. We believe that early detection of such health conditions are vital for their proper management, and provides the best outcome for our patients. We don’t merely treat the disease, we treat the patient, and we want to help you achieve optimal health.
If you would like to schedule an appointment or have questions about cardiac or pulmonary evaluations and tests, please call our office at 972-985-8000 today!
