Our single-use spirometers have q-flow sensors that come individually sealed in printed, pre-cut sachets. Being for single-patient-use only means the risks of cross-infection are considerably less. This also relieves the physician from the tedious task of disinfecting them after use and calibrating them beforehand. This post explains how to use spirometer on your patients in non-technical detail.

How to Use Spirometer on Your Patients under Supervision

We recommend that initial use is under medical supervision. After that, post-surgical patients may be able to use one at home, in order to improve their breathing capacity progressively. Our professional, user-friendly, and intuitive design facilitates self-treatment. Here are the basics of how to use spirometer on your patients in simple terms to help you explain it in an easier manner. You can access the technical details on our website.

Our spirometer design incentivizes patients as they can physically watch the progress as they reach towards their goal. Allow them to rest for a few seconds before repeating the process. Typical treatment includes 10 to 15 repetitions every 1 to 2 hours, with progress indicated towards normal, healthy breathing.

Exceptions and Notes for the Doctor

Encourage the patient to persist if they are unable to breathe as deeply. This can be disheartening and they may require encouragement. Should they become lightheaded or dizzy pause the treatment, remove the mouthpiece, and allow them to breathe normally until they recover.

Our computerized Spirolyser Q13 uses patented single-use FLEISCH-type sensors. The proprietary sachet packs ensure the operator’s hands never touch them, while an innovative ejection system makes them readily disposable. Onboard Spirowin Expert software benefits from an interface that is easy to use, and delivers:

Independent bacteriological laboratory testing shows that there is virtually no risk (99.999%) of cross-contamination between patients, provided a single patient uses a sensor mouthpiece. As medical professional – or health professional such as occupational health worker – you can use spirometer on your patients in confidence and with the right precautions.
