What is a Triflow?

The Triflow Incentive Breathing Spirometer is a disposable plastic device used to expand the lungs. It's designed to promote slow Sustained Maximal Inspiration (SMI), which is important for general well-being and to help those with certain diseases or who have just undergone surgery.

Likewise, what is a good reading on the Voldyne 5000?

The Voldyne 5000 has a goal range between 250 and 2500 ml, so your goal should fall somewhere within this range. These numbers indicate the amount of air volume your lungs are able to intake. While it's usually best to begin the procedure with a volume goal in mind, it isn't strictly necessary for the first use.

Beside above, do Lung exercisers work? Aerobic exercises use large muscle groups to move at a steady, rhythmic pace. This type of exercise works your heart and lungs, improving their endurance. This helps your body use oxygen more efficiently and, with time, can improve your breathing.

Beside above, what is the purpose of an AirLife?

An incentive spirometer is a device that measures how deeply you can inhale (breathe in). It helps you take slow, deep breaths to expand and fill your lungs with air. This helps prevent lung problems, such as pneumonia.

What is a good reading on a spirometer?

Interpretations of spirometry results require comparison between an individual's measured value and the reference value. If the FVC and the FEV1 are within 80% of the reference value, the results are considered normal. The normal value for the FEV1/FVC ratio is 70% (and 65% in persons older than age 65).
