A spirometer is a device to measure timed expired and inspired volumes, and hence indicate how quickly and effectively the lungs can be emptied and filled.

Spirometry can be used to screen for respiratory disease, diagnose obstructive airways disease and to monitor disease progression and rehabilitation/treatment gains. Vital capacity is a predictor of death from respiratory and cardiac disease and abnormal spirometry is associated with an increase in ‘all-cause’ mortality.1
