Voldyne 5000

What is Voldyne 5000?

Voldyne 5000 is a spirometer, a device to measure the flow of air during inhalation. It should also help to open the lungs more, especially after operations or break-ins in the LUFU. 

Pros

  • Easy to use, no electricity required
  • Shows the value of the inhaled air and can be used as a test to see if everything is okay. 
  • May help to fill the lungs with more air (by conscious, deep inhalation)
  • Easy cleaning (mouthpiece only).

Cons

  • The result varies greatly depending on the daily form or method of use. 
  • For me nothing else than a measuring instrument for in between

My review

I have tested the Voldyne 5000 and find the device quite ok. It shows the current state of the lungs, although of course not as accurate as a PFT. The device also only measures the air when inhaled, i.e. the lung volume. An FEV1 value is not measured here. Also I don't see a big advantage at least with us CFlers. With inhalation, PEP and other instruments I find a lot more effect.  Personally I need the device very rarely.

How to use Voldyne 5000?

  1. Breathe in and out a few times.
  2. Exhale all of the air.
  3. Get on the device and take a deep breath. Pay attention to the left display, which should always be between the markings.
  4. Inhale as much air as possible.
  5. Read the result from the right side
  6. If you wish, you can repeat this a few times. Take a short break in between
