Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy of FRC and airway resistance calculate values of Spircare device as compared to the conventional body plethysmograph in healthy adults and patients with obstructive and restrictive pulmonary diseases/disorders.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
COPD Asthma Pulmonary Fibrosis Device: Plethysmograph

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 90 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Accuracy of Spircare Device as Compared to the Conventional Plethysmograph
Actual Study Start Date : July 31, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2019

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Plethysmograph
    A full Body Plethysmography examination

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The FRC and air way resistance values of the body plethysmograph will be compared to the values of the Spircare device [ Time Frame: September 2017 ]
    The primary outcome of the FRC and air way resistance of the Spircare device against the plethysmograph will be displayed as scatter plot. A linear regression and the R2 value will be display as well. The associated Bland-Altman plots comparing the FRC and airway resistance of the Spircare device to the plethysmograph with lines that represent width of 0.1 (±1.96*SD).
