What is a pulmonary function test?

A pulmonary function test, or a lung function test, can be a useful tool if you're experiencing breathing problems, like shortness of breath. This test can help your provider determine if your lungs are functioning properly, or if you need treatment to help improve your breathing. It can also help identify lung diseases like asthma, bronchitis, or emphysema. 

Pulmonary function tests may be conducted using a spirometry reading, plethysmography, or a diffusion capacity test to assess your lung function. 

What is respirator mask fit testing?

Full- and half-face respirators must seal to the wearer’s face in order to provide expected protection. This includes disposable respirators (also called “filtering facepieces”). Therefore, fit testing is required in the US by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) before a user wears a mandatory respirator on the job, and must be assessed at least annually. In addition, fit tests should be performed when:

  • A different size, style, model or make of respirator is used
  • Any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work

What is an audiogram?

An audiogram is a hearing test that helps determine what sounds, pitches, and frequencies that a person can hear. Audiograms can be instrumental in determining if you have hidden hearing loss in one or both ears. 

What is drug testing?

Drug testing is a method of testing your urine, hair, and saliva for illicit substances that affect the way you think or behave. You might need to produce a clean drug test result as a condition of your employment or to confirm whether you were under the influence at the time of an accident or incident. Either way, the team at Industrial Medical Group of Santa Maria Valley can test you promptly at any time of day.

When would I need health screening services?

Oftentimes, you need certain health screenings to enter school, start a new job, or play sports. The team at Industrial Medical Group of Santa Maria Valley offers health screenings for a variety of needs, including blood tests, like drug and alcohol screenings, that may be required by an employer.
