Lung Function Exams
Lung function exams are required in situations where workers are exposed to respirable silica dust, coal dust, metal welding fumes or asbestos. These assessments look at data from PFTs, x-rays, and radiologist's assessments to provide you with the information you need to protect your worker's long term health.
As the symptoms caused by long term exposure to aerosols that cause Chronic Obstruction Pulmonary Disease (COPD) don't show up until the damage is done, early intervention is of paramount importance. A comprehensive monitoring program must be implemented to ensure long term viability of your employee's lung health.
COPD is a major cause of disability and it's the third leading cause of death in North America. Currently, millions of people are diagnosed with COPD. Many more people may have the disease and not even know it.
COPD develops slowly. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit your ability to do routine activities.
