Parts of Incentive Spirometer
- Flexible breathing tube
- Air chamber
The breathing tube is connected to the air chamber and ends with a mouthpiece. The indicator is located inside the device and can be found by locating the numbers on the column. You breathe in air through a tube connected to a large air column containing a piston or ball when using an incentive spirometer. The piston or ball inside the column rises as you breathe in. The height of the piston or ball indicates how much air you inhaled.
