Pulmonary Testing Insurance
Pulmonary tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange are done to see how healthy the lungs are. The information the test provides can help your doctor diagnose and treat different lung disorders such as asthma, bronchitis, respiratory infections, lung cancer, and more.
When you take a pulmonary test, you will have to empty your lungs by taking a deep breath and gently breathe the air out. Although pulmonary testing is relatively low risk, it is not guaranteed that risks are completely diminished. Regardless of how many safety procedures you take, humans will always make mistakes and sometimes these mistakes can lead to serious consequences. For instance, the spirometer might break or your client might have an asthma attack due to deep inhalation.
Due to uncertainties in the medical environment, it is important to get insurance to protect the business and healthcare professionals. Professional liability insurance and medical malpractice insurance can protect you from negligence claims and lawsuits that would otherwise be very costly. There are other insurances you should consider such as property insurance in case the spirometer malfunctions during the procedure.
