Incentive spirometer is a device used to patients for their improvement of lung function. Incentive spirometer is given for surgery undergoing patients for their prolonged bed recovery. It helps in rib damage cases to minimize the chance of fluid build-up in lungs and it improves the air flow.

Incentive spirometry, also referred to as sustained maximal inspiration, is accomplished by using a device that provides feedback when the patient inhales at a predetermined flow or volume and sustains the inflation for at least 5 seconds. The patient is instructed to hold the spirometer in an upright position, exhale normally, and then place the lips tightly around the mouthpiece. The next step is a slow inhalation to raise the ball (flow-oriented) or the piston/plate (volume-oriented) in the chamber to the set target.
