Respiratory Research Study

Portsmouth Hospital Trust Respiratory Research Team requests your assistance.

Our colleagues at QA Hospital are looking for people (without a lung condition) to take part in a study (The EXHALE Study) of a new device to help diagnose lung disease. Please see the forwarded message below from the research nurse, Jayne, and download the Participant Information Sheet for more details. If you're interested to get involved, please contact Jayne directly using the contact information below. As always, please feel free to forward this on to others who you think maybe interested.

Many thanks



We need your help! We are starting a new device trial called the EXHALE 1V Study. We desperately need healthy volunteers
who are -

  • 40 AND OVER
  • Do not have a lung condition
  • Are a non-smoker
  • Ex-smoker less than 20 a day for 5 years and stopped more than 6 months ago.

We are running a clinic every Thursday and Friday on D8, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth between December–March 2019.

We will also give you £10 for your time.

Please would you let us know as soon as possible if you can help us out. All we need you to do is to breathe normally into the device, and also complete standard lung function tests. We’ll also review your medical history and current medication.

Contact us by email using the Blue Bird link on the top right of this page or catch one of us in the Respiratory Research Department.

Telephone 02392 28 6000 ext 4108.

Thank you so very much in advance for your help to make a difference to patient care,

Best wishes,

Jayne Longstaff
