About Spirare spirometry
The Spirare system offers the best in PC based spirometry. It is mainly made
for general practice, and with add on features for specialists like bronchial
challenge tests (using cold/dry air or pharmacological agents). There is also
an exercise challenge test which is included in the basic version.
In Spirare, forced expiration is set as the default test, but you may also choose
to do slow vital capacity, a combination where SVC is follwed by FVC, or
other tests such as tidal volume or MVV. In ATS/ERS 2019 it is recommended
doing expiration + inspiration as a means of quality control. This is not recommended for Norwegian GPs,
but Spirare may of course be used with Exp + Insp as a setting.
Functions include automatic spirometric quality evaluation, comprehensive
reports and trend graphs adjusted for normal ageing of the lungs, giving
a good overview of patient history. The system also includes an interactive animation for
Spirare complies with ATS/ERS recommendations for standarised spirometry,
and ISO standard for spirometry from 2009. Spirare users are guaranteed
support and access to the most recent versions of the Spirare software.
Spirare ultrasonic spirometer sensor
The Spirare SPS330 sensor uses a two way ultra sound to measure the speed of the air flow. This method is highly accurate and represents the most modern technology in spirometry. The digital technology makes re-calibration of the sensor unnessecary. Spirare has its own routine for quality control that monitors the accuracy of the sensor.
The sensor is very easy to use, thanks to its portable and ergonomic design.
Hygienic disposable mouthpieces prevent crosscontamination. These are very comfortable to use for for adults as well as children.
This unique technology and design make the sensor reliable. It has no loose and movable parts, which require service and cleaning.
The USB connection means there is no need for batteries or separate power supply.
The light sensor connected to a laptop or a mini PC is your portable spirometry system, well suited for use outside your office.
The Spirare sensor is maintenance free. See our brochure for more details.
Reference values GLI-2012
The spirometry module uses the Spirare Sensor for a number of standard spirometry tests, including expiration and inspiration tests, exertional provocation test, reversibility test (Post BD) and trend graphs. Spirare is delviered with GLI-2012 as default setting for the ages 3-95 years, but the user may also choose from a variety of local population studies, such as OLIN, Hedenström, Gulsvik, and Langhammer and more.
We have been making our reports more clear and more efficient during the past few years. We will be taking further steps for simplifying reports in 2021 and we'll share the reports with you on this site.

Inline virus- and bacteria filters
Inline virus- and bacteria filters are now available for Spirare spirometer. International guidelines from ATS/ERS recommend the use of in line filters in all spirometry testing. In Sweden it has been advised that spirometry shall not be done without these filters.
