an·e·mom·e·ter

(an'ĕ-mom'ĕ-ter),
An instrument for measuring the velocity of air flow.
[G. anemos, wind, + metron, measure]

anemometer

(a″nĕ-mom′ĕ-tĕr) [Gr. anemos, wind + -meter]
In pulmonary function studies, a device for measuring the rate of air flow through a tube. The rate at which air flows into or out of the lung may be measured by using a calibrated anemometer.
