What is Spirometry?

A spirometer is a device which measures the amount of air that you can blow out. There are various spirometer devices made by different companies, but they all measure the same thing. They all have a mouthpiece that you use to blow into the device. A physiologist or nurse may ask you to blow into a spirometer ('spirometry') if you have chest or lung symptoms.
