Economy Buhl Spirometer
Inexpensive and lightweight spirometer for screening large populations or used as an incentive exerciser for individuals with respiratory dysfunction.
What is Spirometry Used For:
- Spirometry is used to screen for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, and other conditions that can adversely affect breathing.
- Spirometry can also be used to monitor a person's lung condition or help evaluate the effectiveness of respiratory treatments a person may be undergoing.
The Process of Conducting a Spirometer Test:
Spirometry measures how much air you inhale, how much air you exhale, and how fast you exhale.
- Take a deep breath and blows into the disposable mouthpiece as hard as you can for several seconds into the tube of the spirometer. Ensure that you keep your lips sealed around the tube.
- Repeat the test three times consistent results. If there is too much variation between the three outcomes, you may need to repeat the test again. The highest value among three close test results is used as the final result.
- Indicator registers forced vital lung capacity up to 7 liters. Reading stays at maximum until reset.
- Forced vital lung capacity (FVC). The largest amount of air that a person can forcefully exhale after breathing in as deeply as possible. A lower than normal FVC reading indicates restricted breathing.
