Pulmonary function tests are the primary diagnostic tools for copd, after the medical history and physical examinationthese tests demonstrate characteristic abnormalities in lung function that, in the proper clinical context (ie, medical history, physical examination, chest x-ray) confirm or support the diagnosis of copd and give some idea of the degree of impairment and prognosis.
