Preparing for your test

On the day of the test please wear comfortable clothing and shoes that are able to be taken on and off easily as we will need to take your height and weight on the day with your shoes off. 

If you are doing a walk test (6 minute walk test) please wear shoes that are also comfortable to walk in. 

For standard lung function testing we ask that you do not smoke or exercise for 1 hour prior to your test. 


Please do not use your Ventolin, Asmol or Bricanyl for 4 hours prior to the test, unless your breathing becomes distressed. 

If you are having a Bronchialprovocation test (Mannitol Challenge), Allergen Skin Prick Test or FeNO (Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide) test please see the withholding chart for specific times to withhold your medication. 

Please know or bring a list of your usual inhaler medication on the day.
