Tissot spirometer

A very large water-sealed spirometer designed for accumulating expired gas over a long period of time; the counterbalancing of the bell (almost frictionless) is compensated for the bell's change in buoyancy as it emerges from the water, keeping the contained gas precisely at ambient atmospheric pressure.
