The act or process of measuring the chest capacity by means of a spirometer.
a test of lung condition; a person breathes into a machine called a spirometer that measures the volume of air exhaled
A test that measures the volume and flow of air breathed out of the lungs.
see total lung capacity test
The most commonly used pulmonary function test, done in a doctor's office or pulmonary function laboratory. The machine used measures how fast a person can blow out air, and how much air is blown. The results of this test include the FEV-1, the peak flow, and the FVC.
a functionnal test of the lungs
Spirometry is making pulmonary measurements with a spirometer, an instrument used for measuring respiratory gases.
Assessment of respiratory function by means of determination of exhaled volumes and flow velocity during exhalation. Is performed by special gas meters, spirometers, of which there are several kinds.
A basic lung function test that measures how fast and how much air can be breathed out of the lungs
A diagnostic test which can be performed at doctors surgeries and outpatient clinics. By breathing into a mouthpiece the amount of air inhaled and exhaled is measured.
A simple lung function test that measures lung volume as a function of time; it can be used to ascertain lung volumes or to gain information about maximal expiratory flow rates.
a test to measure lung function that can be done in a doctors office
The most important test for diagnosing asthma. A spirometer is an instrument that measures the maximum volume you can exhale after breathing in as much as you can. The total volume you exhale is called "forced vital capacity," or FVC. The spirometer also measures the volume of air you exhale in the first second. (This is referred to as "forced expiratory volume in one second," or FEV1.) In general, the more air you breath out during the first second of a full exhalation, the better. Most people with asthma use a spirometer at the doctorÕs office during examinations and checkups. Small spirometers are available for home use, although peak flow meters are more appropriate for most people.
a pulmonary test of the lungs using a spirometer.
A set of pulmonary functions tests that are performed by breathing into an instrument called a spirometer, which records the amount and rate of air that is inhaled and exhaled. Some of the test measurements are obtained by normal breathing, and other tests require forced inhalation and/or exhalation.
medical testing procedure which measures the amount of air entering and leaving the lungs
The most commonly used pulmonary function test, performed in a doctor's office or pulmonary function laboratory. It is a powerful diagnostic and assessment tool that provides clear, objective documentation of lung function. Spirometry measures air flow from fully inflated lungs. A main objective of spirometry is to assess whether a patient has an obstructive lung defect.
A test of the air capacity of the lung. The test utilizes a machine called a spirometer to measure the volume of air inspired and expired by the lungs.
best test available in primary care for early detectin of many lung disorders, this procedure provides following key parameters. Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) Forced Expiratory Volume in 1st second following maximal inspiration (FEV1) Forced Expiratory Ratio in 1st second (FEV1/FVC%)
A breath test to measure airway obstruction. Using a device called a spirometer, the volume of air breathed out from the lungs is measures in a certain time (one second for example). The person takes a deep breath and breathes out into the device through the mouth as quickly and for as long as possible with a clip on the nose. This test can be taken before or after use of medication to open the airways.
The measure of the amount of air that the patient can inhale and exhale from the lungs.
A test of lung function that is performed by breathing into a machine.
Measuring amount of air blown.
A simple, painless breathing test performed in a physicianâ€(tm)s office or pulmonary function laboratory that measures how fast you can force air from your lungs and the total amount of air you can empty from your lungs (see Asthma).
Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the measurement of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for assessing conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, and COPD.
