Explanation:
Yo me iría por espirometría incentivada.

No es una espirometría diagnóstica sino una técnica de higiene bronquial o fisioterapia pulmonar también conocida en inglés como SMI (sustained maximal inspiration), y consiste en:

DEFINICIÓN:
«2.1 Incentive spirometry is designed to mimic natural sighing or yawning by encouraging the patient to take long, slow, deep breaths...This is accomplished by using a device that provides patients with visual or other positive feedback when they inhale at a predetermined flowrate or volume and sustain the inflation for a minimum of 3 seconds.
The objectives of this procedure are to increase transpulmonary pressure and inspiratory volumes, improve inspiratory muscle perfor-mance, and re-establish or simulate the normal pattern of pulmonary hyperinflation.»
