    Does anyone know what tests are included in a Complete Spirometry Study? Dodmerb is requesting because of a single inhaler use for infection when DS was young (before age 13). Not automatic grounds for DQ, I understand the careful screening. Just wondering if we are better off doing this privately or through the military medical offices. Thank you.

    To be qualified you have to go through their doctors

    It is a simple lung test. Breath into a tube as strong as you can and then breath in and out just through your mouth. No study required for this test. If his lungs are normal should be a piece of cake. They just want to be sure he doesn't have lung disease. Most likely has to be done by DOD doctor. Just follow their directions.
