H29 Basal Metabolic Rate

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) refers to body metabolism as measured under a set of standard basal conditions designed to minimize the effects of as many influencing factors as possible.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To obtain Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) values from a subject.
  2. To compare this rate to standardized rate.
  3. To measure post-exercise metabolic rate and compare it to BMR.

Lesson Hardware

Important! Required equipment varies based on the BSL software version, MP unit, and setup option used for recording --> GASSYS3 is the currently shipping Gas Analysis Module. The lesson can also be recorded using an older GASSYS2 with module-specific template and instructions. Please download and check the appropriate Lesson Procedure (PDF) for your specific setup. Typical hardware may include but is not limited to the following...

RSP Smart Amplifier

The RSP Respiration Smart Amplifier is specifically designed for recording signals from a respiration transducer for direct physical measurement of respiratory effort. The amp works with the transducer to measure abdominal or thoracic expansion and contraction while breathing and permits DC coupling for the recording of respiratory effort signals of arbitrarily low frequency. BIOPAC’s new Smart […]
