Abstract

Background: Spirometers are critical devices that reveal the respiratory dynamics caused by respiratory problems and their severity and facilitate their diagnosis and follow-up. Hand-held spirometers have emerged relatively recently and offer several advantages over conventional desktop systems. There remains, however, a need for reassurance of high-quality spirometry testing with next-generation portable spirometers that connect over Bluetooth (R) to smart device applications. In this study, we examine the accuracy and repeatability of lung function measurements of a novel hand-held ultrasonic spirometer, the Spirohome Clinic and compare its clinical performance to a reference device, the EasyOne Air.
