Spirometry Flow Graph

What is Spirometry?

The lung function test spirometry measures the volume and/or flow rate of gas breathed in and/or out of the lungs under specific conditions of maximal effort using a spirometer.

The Spirometer can test the health of all persons, especially those exposed to respiratory hazards in the workplace by determining:

  • presence of lung disease or abnormalities
  • extent of abnormalities or impairment
  • progression of lung disease
  • nature of the physiological disturbance
  • course of therapy
