Do you have a history of smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke or environmental/occupational pollutants? Do you have a family history of chronic lung disease? Do you have symptoms of coughing, wheezing, and/or shortness of breath? If you answered yes to all three questions, then you are a candidate for spirometry testing.

Spirometry is a test that can help diagnose various lung conditions, such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. The test is performed using a handheld device known as a spirometer, which measures the volume of air inspired and expired by the lungs. There are two types of spirometers, namely: (1) the volume displacement spirometers (the earlier version) and (2) the flow-sensing spirometers (the modern version).

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
