A virtual instrument to diagnose the deformities in lungs is presented. This VI will enable to give information about the deformities in lungs by analyzing the volume and sound information of a patient’s lungs. Pulmonary Function Testing has been a major step forward in assessing the functional status of the lungs. PFT can be used to diagnose the presence of obstructive or restrictive lung diseases.
