268 – Metabolic Analysis Systems and Propane-based Verification

This application note examines a conventional equipment setup for metabolic measurements. The setup is exposed to a propane-based, combustion verification source that emulates subject’s steady-state consumption of oxygen and production of carbon dioxide. A propane-based, combustion source is a very reliable and accurate metabolic gas generator that can be used to verify the performance of a metabolic measurement system.

The following equipment is discussed: MP150 System, CO2100C carbon dioxide concentration module, O2100C oxygen concentration module, TSD107B airflow transducer with DA100C amplifier, AFT25 face mask and non-rebreathing T-valve, AFT15A mixing chamber, AFT7 tubing , AFT20 gas sampling interface kit, AFT26 calibration syringe, GASCAL calibration gas, and GASREG regulator.

Optimize Event-Related EDA

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
