Motor and Sensory Function as a Predictor of Respiratory …
RESULTS: Bedside spirometry and diaphragm fluoroscopic tests were analyzed according to ventilator dependence. Forced vital capacity and maximal inspiratory pressure were significantly higher in the ventilator weaned group.
Bedside Spirometry This common test assesses how well your lungs work by measuring how much air is inhaled and exhaled as well as how quickly it is exhaled. A physician can use the information to determine how well you’re responding to medication and to diagnose and evaluate lung disease.
Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the pulmonary function tests (PFTs). It measures lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is helpful in assessing …

Spirometry is a method of assessing lung function by measuring the volume of air that the patient is able to expel from the lungs after a maximal inspiration. It is a reliable method of differentiating between obstructive airways disorders (e.g. chronic …
Spirometry in the clinical setting has become so important, it is recommended in the current practice guidelines for both asthma and COPD.
