Spirometer

Spirometer product image

The Spirometer is designed to make human respiratory measurements at rest and during moderate activity. Use it to perform a variety of experiments related to air flow and lung volume. The removable flow head (22 mm ID/30 mm OD) makes it easy to clean and sterilize.
