H19 VO2 & RER

View Cart “Disposable Mouthpiece” has been added to your cart.

This BSL PRO lesson records absolute volume of O2 and CO2 in a 60-second interval.

The lesson was updated in May 2015 for BSL 4.0.1 and in Jan 2012 to include an optional 2-point calibration; the graph template gtl and the gtl settings PDF were updated to reflect this change.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To obtain absolute VO2 and RER values for a subject at rest (optional segments include hyperventilation and recovery from exercise).
  2. To demonstrate the relationship between VO2 and RER.

Cardiac Output amplifier

NICO Smart Amplifier

The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
