Test del respiro


Explanation:
As a medical translator I would use "Breath test""", but "Test del respiro" is possible.
In Italian we use Breath test as follows:
13C urea breath test per Helicobacter pylori
Breath test all'idrogeno
Breath test all'aminopirina per lo studio della funzionalità epatica.
