Overview of parameters in spirometry
There are many different parameters in spirometry. The table below gives an overview of the most commenly used spirometry values and explains what they represent.
These parameters represent volumes and can be read from the volume-time graph:
These parameters represent flows and can be read from the flow-volume loop:
These parameters can also be measured during a spirometry test:
