You may not realize how important your respiratory health is until you have a breathing problem.
If you have asthma or are having strep throat symptoms, speak with your pharmacist about these tests to ensure that your respiratory health is optimal.
Spirometry is a painless test that measures how much air flows into and out of your lungs. This exam can help diagnose asthma and severe obstructive pulmonary diseases, among other things. This test will also show whether your therapy is working as expected and if your condition has been brought under control.
Strep throat testing
If you have strep throat symptoms, a doctor may request this test on-site to verify:
- That a bacterium is causing the infection.
- The antibiotic will work.
Then, if you have a prescription, see your pharmacist to have it filled.
