Its called The Contec SP10BT, it is a Hand-Held Bluetooth Spirometer with PC Software + Colour Display – £249.98
What is a Spirometer?
A spirometer is a device used by your doctor to assess lung function. Spirometry, the evaluation of lung function with a spirometer, is one of the simplest, most common pulmonary function tests and may be necessary for any of the following reasons:
To determine how well the lungs receive, hold, and utilize air
To monitor a lung disease
To monitor the effectiveness of treatment
To determine the severity of a lung disease
To determine whether the lung disease is restrictive (decreased airflow) or obstructive (disruption of airflow)
After taking a deep breath, you forcefully breathe out into the spirometer as completely and forcefully as possible. The spirometer measures both the amount of air expelled and how quickly the air was expelled from the lungs. The measurements are recorded by the spirometer.
The normal, healthy values measured by the spirometer for the amount of air exhaled vary from person to person. Your results are compared to the average expected in someone of the same age, height, sex, and race, according to NHLBI. However, if the values fall below 85 percent of the average, it may indicate a lung disease or other airflow obstruction. If you have abnormal spirometer measurements, you may be referred for other lung tests to establish a diagnosis.
Hand-held equipment for checking lung conditions. Suitable for home family, hospital, or clinic use.
Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Forced Expired Volume in one second (FEV1), the ratio of FEV1 and FVC (FEV1/FVC), Peak expiratory flow (PEF), 25% flow of the FVC (FEF25), 50% flow of the FVC (FEF50), 75% flow of the FVC(FEF75) and average flow between 25% and 75% of the FVC(FEF2575) can be measured
Testee condition can be shown by the ratio of the measured value and the predicted value
