This Application Note describes how to record percent End-Tidal CO2 (% ETCO2) using a BIOPAC CO2100C Carbon Dioxide Amplifier. The note details subject interface options for high flow without a mask, high flow with a mask, low flow without a mask, and MRI.
When a BIOPAC CO2100C Carbon Dioxide Measurement Amplifier is used in conjunction with the MP150 Data Acquisition System and AcqKnowledge software, it’s easy to perform, real-time, breath-by-breath measurements. The AcqKnowledge software will calculate the peak expired CO2 signal to report percent End-Tidal CO2.
End-Tidal CO2 can also be combined with other pulmonary function measurements when a flow transducer and oxygen measurement amplifier are added to the system.
The Ventilator Validation Kit supports new prototype development, existing design validation for production testing, mobile field testing and verification, and other uses where accurate pressure and flow measurements are critical. The Ventilator Validation Kit provides ventilator manufacturers and prototype developers with a complete solution for validating new medical/hospital-grade ventilator products intended for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes […]
New Ventilator Validation System Allows Device Manufacturers to Test Ventilator Pressure and Volume System supports rapid development and testing of hardware for COVID-19 treatment Goleta, California – March 24, 2020 BIOPAC Systems, Inc. announced a new Ventilator Validation System for engineering and device manufacturers to use when designing and testing new and existing ventilators for […]
Space Flight Simulations Prevent Disasters Under psychological and physical stress, astronauts can put their mission and crew in danger. Looking into this issue, researchers created a potentially catastrophic spaceflight simulation using a virtual reality environment and recorded the heart rate of participants. Psychophysiological responses to the potentially disastrous flight simulation were recorded using a BIOPAC MP […]
