Incentive Spirometer Parts

An incentive spirometer is used to measure and improve lung function. Patients with lung disease use a spirometer to push their lungs to work harder with the goal of expanding and accommodating more air. This will maximize the benefits of stem cell therapy.

How To Use a Spirometer:

  • Take a deep breath.
  • Exhale slowly into the mouthpiece. Use your airflow to raise the ball to the top of the tube, holding it there for 3 seconds.
  • Repeat for 10 repetitions.
  • Do this 2-3 times per day for the next 6 months.
  • Every 4 weeks, turn the airflow dial to the next setting. Each turn of the dial increases the resistance to your airflow, challenging your lungs to work harder.
  • The goal is to train your lungs to expand and accommodate more air, increasing the benefits of your stem cell treatment.
