SpiroConnect® - Physiology

Spirometry is the measurement of flow and volume from a forced exhalation and is used to diagnose and monitor a variety of respiratory diseases. The two most common type of respiratory disease are COPD and asthma.

COPD – Definition
"Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a common preventable and treatable disease, is characterized by persistent airflow limitation that is usually progressive and associated with enhanced chronic inflammatory response in the airways and the lung to noxious particles or gases. Exacerbations and comorbidities contribute to the overall severity in individual patients." - www.goldcopd.org

Asthma – Definition
"Asthma Asthma is a common chronic disorder of the airways that is complex and characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, airflow obstruction, bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and an underlying inflammation. The interaction of these features of asthma determines the clinical manifestations and severity of asthma and the response to treatment." - www.nih.gov

Main Spirometry Parameters:
(FVC) - Forced vital capacity - is the volume of air that can forcibly be blown out after full inspiration, measured in liters

(FEV1) - Forced expiratory volume in 1 second - is the volume of air that can forcibly be blown out in one second, after full inspiration

FEV1/FVC ratio (FEV1%) - the ratio of FEV1 to FVC

(FEF) Forced expiratory flow - is the flow (or speed) of air coming out of the lung during the middle portion of a forced expiration. It can be given at discrete times, generally defined by what fraction remains of the forced vital capacity (FVC). The usual intervals are 25%, 50% and 75% (FEF25, FEF50 and FEF75). It can also be given as a mean of the flow during an interval, usually between 25% and 75% of FVC (FEF25–75)

(FIF) Forced inspiratory flow - is the flow (or speed) of air going into the lung during the middle portion of a forced inspiration. It is most commonly measured over the interval of 25% to 50% or 25% to75% of FVC (FIF25-50 or FIF25-75)

(PEF) Peak expiratory flow - is the maximal flow (or speed) achieved during the maximally forced expiration initiated at full inspiration

(TV) Tidal volume - is the amount of air inhaled and exhaled for each breath normally at rest

(MVV) Maximum voluntary ventilation - is a measure of the maximum amount of air that can be inhaled and exhaled within one minute

(FET) Forced Expiratory Time - measures the length of the expiration in seconds during a forced spirometry maneuver

(SVC) Slow vital capacity - is the maximum volume of air that can be exhaled slowly after slow maximum inhalation

SpiroConnect® - General Practice

SpiroConnect® is easy to use, extremely stable, reliable and accurate at all flows. Its performance has been independently tested in a study aiming to establish the accuracy of spirometry measurements produced by SpiroConnect® in comparison to those obtained from a pitot-type spirometer and no clinically significant differences in the FEV1 or VC measurements occurred in the two devices.

SpiroConnect® Data Manager PC software and Mobile App allow for a real time graphical display providing immediate patient and operator feedback and quality control, data storage, test and calibration check.

SpiroConnect® PC software is user friendly and intuitive with functional icons and an online user manual. It supports the following predicted value data sets: GLI, ECCS, Polgar, Zapletal and Austrian-Forche. The acceptance criteria can be selected from: ARTP, ATS/ERS or BTS.
