Incentive spirometry (IS) is a respiratory therapy technique that uses a mechanical device (an incentive spirometer) to reduce such PPCs during immediate postoperative period.
We have investigated that whether educating and getting the patients well versed with the incentive spirometer renders any benefit in their post-operative recovery or not.
An extensive literature search (2001-2008) found no references for the use of an incentive spirometer for patients admitted with medical diagnoses.
Independent patients received an incentive spirometer (Voldyne[R] 5000 Volumetric Exeroser, Hudson RCI [Research Triangle Park, NC]) and an oral care packet of toothbrush and toothpaste.
Tomich and colleagues (2007) studied breathing patterns at baseline and after respiratory exercises in healthy young adult subjects, comparing diaphragmatic breathing exercises with two types of incentive spirometers. They found diaphragmatic breathing and the volume-oriented incentive spirometer (Voldyne) exercises showed similar beneficial results over the flow-oriented incentive spirometer (Triflo[TM] II).
Only the patients who could not use an incentive spirometer were turned and provided with daily oral care.
Reminding patients to use an incentive spirometer is customary on surgical units.
Use incentive spirometer (breathing device) every 2 hours while awake.
Once endotracheal tube (breathing tube) is removed begin working with incentive spirometer (breathing device) every 2 hours.
Comparison of distinct incentive spirometers on chest wall volumes, inspiratory muscular activity and thoracoabdominal synchrony in the elderly.
