Spirometers conduct respiratory analysis to find abnormalities in patient respiration, and they measure patient ventilation. The ability to breathe properly provides most of us the ability to sleep easily, exercise without problem, and distribute oxygen throughout our bloodstream. Most of us don’t even have to think about it, we consume and expel air at a rate that keeps us balanced. Unfortunately, allergies, asthma and many lung diseases prohibit some of us to intake and expel air correctly, and accurately diagnosing the root cause can be tough.
Digital spirometers are non-invasive tools that physicians use to measure for abnormalities in the air volume a patient can inspire and expire via the lungs. Telemedicine Spirometers are used to check up on patients in the field, in hospitals, and in physicians’ offices, these devices can help to monitor and detect issues with pulmonary function. The reports that Spirometers provide are a useful and important step in the diagnosis of lung malfunction and examining specific breathing patterns that point to underlying pulmonary disease, asthma, and allergies and to assess therapeutic interventions.
MFI Medical carries a variety of handheld spirometers and accessories like SpO2 sensors, flowmeters, mouthpieces, nose clips, and more from brands such as MIR, Schiller, and QRS. Physicians can breathe easier knowing that they can help diagnose and treat patients with allergies, lung diseases such as COPD (obstructive pulmonary disease), and asthma by conducting a quick PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) using the spirometers that these reputable brands manufacture.
Some of the spirometers that we carry double as oximeters to provide a more complete picture when it comes to diagnosis of respiratory issues. Some of our MIR spirometers such as the MIR Spirodoc + Oxi Spirometer, and the MIR Spirolab Spirometer have the ability to conduct oximetery readings built into them. This function allows physicians to measure oxygen in the blood through SpO2 testing and heart rate measures. When combined with spirometry measurements of lung capacity and function, measuring oxygenation of the blood can provide a clearer path to diagnosis.
