The Hudson TriFlo II Spirometer monitors your Sustained Maximal Inspiration which is vitally important to your general well-being. Deep breaths expand the small air sacs of your lungs and help clear the air passages of mucus. This, in turn, can help prevent the build up of fluid in your lungs.
Normally, you take many deep breaths each hour--usually without being aware of it. They are spontaneous and automatic, and occur in the form of sighs and yawns.
In certain instances, however, your normal breathing pattern can change. When you are experiencing pain following chest or abdominal surgery, for example, breathing tends to become shallow, and deep breaths are suppressed in an effort to minimize pain. In these instances, it is important that you strive to resume your normal breathing pattern--despite any discomfort you may have. Taking the deep breaths that you might ordinarily suppress will help prevent the possibility of respiratory complications.
By carefully following your physician's instructions and the directions provided with your TriFlo II Spirometer, you should be well on your way toward better breathing.
Instructions for Use:
- With the unit in an upright position, exhale normally and place your lips tightly around the mouthpiece.
- To achieve a Slow Sustained Maximal Inspiration (SMI), inhale at a sufficient rate to raise only the ball in the first chamber, while the ball in the second chamber remains at rest.
- For a higher flow rate, inhale at a rate sufficient to raise the first and second balls, while the ball in the third chamber remains at rest.
- Exhale after performing the exercise, remove the mouthpiece from your lips and exhale normally.
- Relax following each prolonged deep breath, take a moment to rest, and breathe normally. Then, repeat the exercise as directed by your physician.
