The Best Designs in Spirometer Mouthpieces

A spirometer is a very helpful medical device that helps a medical practice check the lung function of its patients. They are used very often by doctors to help them figure out what sort of respiratory problem a patient has. To use one of these products, the patient needs to take a very deep breath and blow air out of her lungs as hard as she can, into the portable mouthpiece. The spirometer mouthpiece is basically a sensor that measure flow, and it is hooked up to the main housing of the spirometer, which has electronics inside that measures data. Because patients are so often sick or suffer from some kind of illness, spirometer mouthpieces are always made to be used by one patient and then disposed. This is why manufacturers produce them in such high numbers.

Spirometer mouthpieces come in a number of designs. In recent years, some manufacturers have tried to upgrade the mouthpieces. One idea is to make them smaller so it is easier for young children to use them. At the same time, the goal is to still make them comfortable for adults to use as well. Generally, we want to have the spirometer mouthpieces on hand at a hospital to all be of one type. If you have to fit a different mouthpiece to the device based upon the type of patient, this could cause a lot of problems.

One type of spirometer mouthpieces that we like are the Safe-t-Chek mouthpieces. These work well because they will easily work with most spirometers. They also work well with peak flow meters. The design of these mouthpieces mean that there is almost no risk of cross contamination. The 8 point peripheral support system means there is a complete seal when the valve shuts totally if the patient tries to inhale. This will cut off the air flow, so there is no passage of any infectious particles in the air.
