a

Spirometry: how to take a lung function test

okay how old are you seven seven ho tall

are you 54 centimeters

okay do you smoke or have you ever

smoked and do you suffer from asthma at

first you take on this nose clip then I

will give you this device you take it

like this you inhale to the max then you

take the mouthpiece into the mouth and

then you exhale completely there are two

important aspects firstly you have to

exhale as fast as possible in the first

second and secondly you have to exhale

completely so that you make sure to get

all the air out of your lungs okay

I'll support you with this I'll tell you

when to stop and we approximately have

to do it three times many times

okay so put on the nose clip please

okay here we go yep

okay keep going keep going keep going

keep going keep going keep going keep

going keep going perfect

okay could you focus on inhaling a

little more if possible and on the other

side exhaling a little longer okay do

when I have a little break or okay you

ready okay okay let's have another try

and I said before try to focus on

inhaling completely and exhaling for the

max okay here we go keep going keep

going keep going keep going keep going

keep going okay yeah yeah but this

wasn't a straight maybe we will have one

or two more and then we are ready just

relax a little and tell me when you're

ready

okay so once again

keep going keep going keep going keep

going keep going keep going keep going

keep going keep going

okay when looking through your lung

function test we firstly look at this

fvc value it shows us the total capacity

of your lungs

the second parameter we look at is the

fev1 fvc value this shows us a potential

abstraction of your of your Airways

large Airways and here you got precisely

hundred percent so you got a really nice

lung function testing congratulations
