Spirometry

Spirometry is a tool that measures how effectively your lungs are working. It is able to show how much air lungs are able to hold (their volume) and how much air can be breathed in and out (inhaled and exhaled) which is called flow. This tool is used to assess damage caused by conditions like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – a group that includes bronchitis and emphysema), pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and asthma. Results are shown on a graph called a pneumotachograph.

Contact Details

COVID-19 : we want to help our patients get well and protect our staff and community.

In Levels 3 and 4, please do not present to the clinic if you are unwell without speaking to one of our staff first.

 If you have cold or flu-like symptoms including cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fever, runny nose or sneezing, please contact the clinic on 09 972 9020 to arrange a time to be swabbed by one of our team.

Swabbing is by appointment only. Please call us on 09 972 9020.

 COVID testing is FREE - you will not be charged for your swab unless you are travelling out of NZ

 

 YOUR SAFETY

The safety and well-being of our patients and staff is a priority for us, and so patients visiting for COVID-19 swabbing are directed to a different parking area, away from the main entrance.  Swabs are carried out in your car where possible, and if an assessment is required, this is done in an isolation room.  

This means that if you need to visit the clinic for another reason, for example your flu vaccine, you will not be exposed to any areas where COVID-19 swabbing is taking place.

 Testing is a vital part of stopping the spread of COVID-19, and we are happy to be helping with this part of the response plan.

 

 There is also a dedicated Healthline number for Coronavirus enquiries – 0800 358 5453. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
