Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Diagnosis

When COPD is diagnosed early, it is easier to treat, and the long-term outcomes are better than when it is first identified in an advanced stage. At the Atlantic Health System Pulmonary Center, we offer the following diagnostic options:

  • Pulmonary function testing:
    • Spirometry, which measure airway function
    • Measurement of lung volumes and diffusion capacity (an estimate of the lungs' ability to transfer oxygen into the red blood cells); performed while sitting and breathing in and out through a mouthpiece

  • Arterial blood gas testing: used to accurately measure the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood

  • Six-minute walk tests or cardio-pulmonary stress test: used to measure exercise capacity and assess lung function during exercise

  • Comprehensive physical examinations

  • Radiographic studies: such as a chest X-ray or CT scan

There are a number of other medical conditions, commonly seen in patients with COPD, which may have a significant negative impact on this condition if they are present and not identified.

Other medical conditions include:

Diagnostic services for COPD are available at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Newton Medical Center.
