Spirometry is one of the simplest pulmonary function tests (PFT) available. It is used to measure how the lung functions by looking into the amount of air inhaled and exhaled and the pace at which it happens. It is useful in establishing various breathing disorders such as COPD, asthma and many more. It can also be used to measure the effectiveness of treatment of a chronic lung condition.
A spirometer is a medicinal device used in spirometry. It is also known as a lung exerciser or a respirometer as it measures the inhaling and exhaling of air from the lungs.
It is ideal in diagnosing lung disease, measuring the effects of exposure to harmful substances, assessing the effects of some medicines in pulmonary treatment and checking lung function before a planned surgery.
With the spirometer, the patient is also able to understand their lung function and capacity.
