The pulmonary function laboratories at Akron Children's Hospital offers complete pulmonary function testing (PFT) to assist doctors in diagnosing and managing children and teens with diseases of the lungs. Located in Akron and Boardman, Akron Children's has the only pediatric pulmonary function laboratories in our 23-county primary service area.
Our lab also is registered by the American Thoracic Society and all tests are performed to standards set by the American Thoracic Society. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are interpreted by one of our pulmonary doctors, and a report is sent to the child's doctor within 48 hours.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
