On-Site Pulmonary Function Testing

Viasys VMax | Pulmonary Group of Central Florida

The Pulmonary Group of Central Florida is one of only two practices in Lake County that offers "the gold standard" of pulmonary function testing that is more comfortable for the patients and generates more reliable results so Dr. Diaz can identify your condition and determine treatment.

The new machine is the most accurate way to measure lung volume. During the test, patients breath through a mouthpiece while wearing nose clips.

In addition to measuring how quickly you can move air out of your lungs, the machine measures how well gases, such as oxygen, are being absorbed into your blood from your lungs.

Services Offered

We offer comprehensive treatment and expert diagnosis and treatment of lung and breathing disorders, including:
