Yale University Pulmonary Function Lab
On Behalf of Dr. Chupp, Myself and the Staff, Welcome to the Pulmonary Function Lab!
In addition to the staff and the directions here are a few facts about our PFT LAB.
This lab was built on the development and innovation of Physicians, Respiratory Therapists, and engineers who pursued the desire to understand the function of the lungs by capturing and documenting the measurements of flows, and gas exchange. From spirograph, to electronic, to digital, this lab has always moved its testing into the future.
From building one of the first Plethysmographs in the world, to traveling around the country and collecting a normal value data base, the staff of the Pulmonary Function lab has always partnered with the leading Physicians to improve and understand the quality of lung function and health.
The focus of the lab has always shifted to meet the needs of this community it serves. As the tests been developed and applied the labs focus has moved from developing equipment to clinical and research applications.
Under the guidance and support of Dr. Geoffrey Chupp we have tripled the number of studies in the last 8 years to Performing over 9000 tests each year on over 3000 patients. We will continue to develop and grow in this same spirit. Fondly, Gail Flynn, Manager
