On Behalf of Dr. Chupp, Myself and the entire Pulmonary Function Team, Welcome to the Pulmonary Function Lab!
The Yale New Haven Hospital PFT lab was built on the innovation of Physicians, Respiratory Therapists, and Biomedical Engineers who pursued the desire to understand the function of the lungs by capturing and documenting the measurements of flows, and gas exchange. From a spirograph, to electronic and digital innovation, 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 been to meet the needs of this community it serves. As our lab grows in locations and variety of testing, we continue our commitment to advancing clinical and research applications.

Spirometry with Bronchodilator
