To use one, your child breathes into a mouthpiece. The doctor may ask your child to breathe normally or to take a deep breath and blow the air quickly out of his or her lungs, like blowing up a balloon. A recording device measures the amount of air inhaled or exhaled and how much time each breath took. These measurements can help the doctor find out if your child has a lung problem, such as asthma.</p> EspirómetroUn espirómetro es un instrumento que mide el funcionamiento de los pulmones.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/spirometer-esp.html/31b5c00a-188d-479c-a27e-96a5a590d4a0kh:age-allAgesOrAgeAgnostickh:clinicalDesignation-allergykh:clinicalDesignation-pulmonologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-pulmonologyAsthma Words to Knowhttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/asthma-center/words-know/1e3f21a2-c4e3-4dc4-8aa6-850a19c47fff
