Department of Physiology in its clinical physiology unit is also providing spirometry and Forced Oscillation Technique (FOT) for lung diseases. FOT is one of its kind machine available at very few places throughout Vidarbha. FOT will be useful for evaluation of lung diseases in children, elderly and weak patients as it uses normal breathing technique instead of forced breathing. Earlier on 11th October 2021, the Department of Physiology started an innovative venture ‘Lifestyle Intervention Clinic’ which is getting very good response from patients.
