How an inspiratory exerciser works
Deep breathing exercise has been shown to be vitally important to your respiratory fitness. Deep breaths are necessary to reach and expand the small air sacs of your lungs. The Voldyne 5000 Volumetric Exerciser measures the volume of air you inspire and shows you how effectively you are filling your lungs with each inhalation. Normally, you take many deep breaths each hour usually without being aware of it. They are spontaneous and automatic, and occur in the form of sighs and yawns.
In certain instances, however, your normal breathing pattern can change. When you are experiencing pain after chest or abdominal surgery, for example, breathing tends to become shallow, and deep breaths are suppressed in an effort to minimize pain.
In these instances, it is important that you try to resume your normal breathing pattern despite any discomfort you may have. Taking the deep breaths you might ordinarily suppress will help prevent the possibility of respiratory complications.
By carefully following your physician’s instructions and the directions provided with your Voldyne 5000 Volumetric Exerciser, you will begin receiving the benefits of slow, deep breathing exercise. With the help of this program, you can hasten your recovery.
NOTE: When the Voldyne 5000 Volumetric Exerciser is placed on table between uses, mouthpiece end of tubing can be placed in notch at top of device.
