Spirometry Quick Reference Guide

This quick reference guide contains practical information on how to do spirometry. Spirometry is an objective physiological test of lung function. A spirometer measures how much, and how quickly, air can be exhaled in a single blow from full lungs. Some spirometers also measure airflow during inspiration.
