Have you received health care services at UrgentWay before?

Respiratory diseases are diagnosed and controlled by measuring the lung function of patients. Spirometry is the main test to evaluate many respiratory diseases such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and requires the use of face masks or mouthpieces.

Important Facts & FAQs

How Do I Know If I Have A Chest Infection?

You should suspect you have a chest infection when you feel sick, have a cough, and often have pain in the front of your chest when you cough along your airways. You may also have a fever, muscle aches, and may have a sore throat or sinusitis, among other symptoms.

Can A Chest Infection Be Dangerous?

A chest infection can be dangerous if it develops into pneumonia where the infection has affected the lungs. Chest infections can be dangerous if they cause a high fever and confusion. Serious complications can also occur, including but not limited to pulmonary embolism – blood clots in the lungs.

What Does It Mean If I Get Repeated Chest Infections?

Having recurrent chest infections can be a sign of, among other things, an underlying lung condition, a vitamin deficiency, or an immune deficiency. It is helpful to see a chest infection specialist to rule out such conditions and see if anything can be done to treat and prevent recurrent infections.
