A spirometry chart, creating using bellows equipment

Used to determine the extent of respiratory disease, crucial factors to examine are:

  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1)
  • Forced Vital Capacity
  • Relaxed expiratory flow

Additionally, peak flows can be performed in primary care or by the patient at home.
