SPIROMETRY

PRICK/ SCRATCH TESTING

The prick/puncture test is used to confirm hypersensitivity to a wide variety of allergens. It is the most convenient and specific method for detecting IgE antibodies. This test is done on the surface of the skin. A tiny amount of allergen is scratched across or lightly pricked into the skin. If you have an allergy, the specific allergens that you are allergic to will cause a chain reaction to begin in your body.

Spirometry includes the use of pulmonary measurements made with a spirometer to evaluate airway obstruction, and if so, whether it is reversible with a bronchodilator. It is mandatory to diagnose and characterize asthma severity.

 

Spirometry is recommended:

 

  •     At the initial visit

  •     After treatment is initiated, and symptoms and peak expiratory flow have stabilized, to

             document attainment of (near) "normal" airway function

  •     At least once yearly to assess maintenance of airway function, regardless of medication (changes).

  •     To evaluate the response to a change in therapy.
