One of our best-selling portable spirometers is the SpiroConnect spirometer. With a range of innovative enhancements, SpiroConnect is one of the most accurate and easy-to-use spirometers on the market. Its proven turbine technology creates less rotational resistance, making it more sensitive to low flow rates. What’s more, its advanced antistatic plastic improves measurement accuracy, making it easier to attain precise spirometry test results.


What is a spirometer used for? 

A spirometer machine is used to conduct a test on a patient with respiratory symptoms. It can be used to diagnose potential airway disorders/lung conditions.

As well as diagnosis, spirometry can be used to assess how severe a condition is and to monitor the progression of an existing respiratory problem. 

What does a spirometer measure?

A spirometer measures:

- how much air is exhaled when a person is relaxed – slow vital capacity (VC)

- how much air can be exhaled in one second – forced expiratory volume (FEV1)

- how much air can be exhaled in one full breath after inhaling deeply – forced vital capacity (FVC)

How do I quality control check my SpiroConnect? 

Considering spirometry tests are used to measure lung functionality and diagnose potential conditions, accuracy is key. Accurate spirometry results are dependent on proper equipment calibration. Read our guide on SpiroConnect calibration verification
