Pulmonary Function Test (PFT): This test may be performed for patients with symptoms of lung problems,
as part of a routine physical, or to assess how well your lungs are functioning
before undergoing surgery. A PFT can be used to help diagnose asthma,
allergies, emphysema (COPD), and other lung disorders.

may also play a role in diagnosing other brain disorders such as brain
injury, stroke, sleep disorders, or dementia.
