Mucus clogs airways Tests Spirometry best test for lung function Fill lungs with air and blow
out forcibly, noninvasive Other Tests Using a stethoscope to listen to the lungs
X-rays and CT scans can be helpful
Blood test (called arterial blood gas) to measure the amounts of oxygen and carbon dioxide in blood Causes Persons lacking the protein alpha-1 antitrypsin may develop emphysema.
