PFT Machine: What it's like to get a pulmonary function test


  • A child on the soccer field, terrified as she struggles to fill her lungs with air.
  • An elderly gentleman, embarrassed that he is bent over on the sidewalk unable to catch his breath.
  • A distraught schoolteacher, unable to teach her lesson due to uncontrollable coughing.
  • For most of us, breathing is the most natural thing to do. We don't even think about it. But for some, it's a daily life-and-death battle.

It's estimated that 11% of our community suffers from asthma, and 13% from some form of chronic lung disease. We all know someone with Asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or Pulmonary Fibrosis (one type is "farmer's lung"). But together, we can help them.

For people with lung disease, an accurate assessment and diagnosis, using a Pulmonary Function Testing Machine, is necessary to getting them the treatment and monitoring they need. Your support will help NVRH purchase a new machine…one that meets current medical standards, is portable for use in community-based settings, and provides the highest quality of medical care available.

Your gift, along with those of your neighbors, local businesses, NVRH employees, Corporators and Trustees, will be joined together to reach our goal of $50,000, helping to ensure the best health care available right here in our local community.

Give NOW, because breathing matters!

With much gratitude,
