Step 2: Eligibility Tests

A simple set of tests are required to determine if you might be a good candidate for the treatment. These include:

  • Pulmonary Function Testing (PFTs)
  • CT scan
  • ABG (a blood test)
  • 6-minute walk test
  • Additional tests, such as an EKG or perfusion scan may be required

A Zephyr-trained Assessment Center or Treatment Center can determine if you are a candidate.
