We covered it in our lessons so I'm assuming it's important to understand.
I found this, which may help...

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/rev...gy-spirometers
(There's quite a bit on the website that we don't need to know though but these are the points I know
  • A spirometer is used to measure lung volume.
  • The trace from this apparatus tells us a lot about the lungs.
  • A spirometer can also be used to determine a person's rate of oxygen consumption.
  • Firstly, it shows that the lungs have a total lung capacity: a maximum quantity of air that the lungs can hold during the deepest possible breath. A spirometer can be used to calculate the vital capacity of the lungs. This is the maximum usable volume of the lungs.
  • Secondly, the spirometer shows that during normal breathing, the volume of air in and out of the lungs in each breath is called the tidal volume. In a normal adult at rest, this is about 0.5L.
  • Finally, we can calculate the ventilation rate from the spirometer: volume of air taken into the lungs in 1 minute.
