Spirometers, instruments for measuring the volume of breath exhaled from the lungs, are important for functional diagnostics of lungs. Modern instruments usually employ a rolling cuff seal [1], and are thus referred to as rolling-seal spirometers. Considering the purpose of spirometers, their basic characteristics are sensitivity S, response threshold ;t, volume measuring range V, and resistance to breathing R. These characteristics are usually standardized in medical and technical… CONTINUE READING
