The Spirometer
Figure 13.9 • The Spirometer – Pulmonary function testing involves multiple instruments and techniques. One basic instrument is the spirometer. The subject breathes in and out of a tube, resulting in vertical displacement of the inner canister, which floats upside down in water. The recorded tracing is analyzed to obtain several basic lung volumes and capacities (see Fig. 13.10).
