Shelbyville Lung Function Testing

Learn How to Treat Lung Health Concerns

While smoking tobacco is the most prominent cause of lung disease, there are many potential contributors that can cause COPD and other lung diseases. Major Health Partners in Shelbyville offers lung function testing to help patients learn more about their health and take steps toward treatment of pulmonary illnesses. Our Pulmonology Department uses state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose lung diseases and create treatment plans. With our award-winning physicians available to help you understand your lung health, we can help you get back to breathing well again.

What is COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease where the lungs are unable to breathe in or out fully due to a breakdown of lung tissue. This gives patients a virtually constant feeling of a shortness of breath. The primary cause for COPD is smoking, but other causes can include air pollution and even poor ventilation. As smoke and pollutants enter the airways, blood vessels can constrict and cause complications such as high blood pressure.
