L13 Pulmonary Function II

BSL pulmonary function lesson
This BSL Pulmonary Function lesson demonstrates how to record and analyze Forced Vital Capacity, Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV 1,2,3) and Maximal Voluntary Ventilation (MVV), and builds on the principles established in L12 Pulmonary Function. Students will perform two tasks in order to record their data, and then they will compare their results with other students in the group and with published normal values for specified height, weight and age.
  • Great introduction to Pulmonary flow studies.
  • Automatically calculates values for FEV and MVV.
  • Uses a clinical grid for easy interpretation of the data.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To observe experimentally, record and/or calculate forced expiratory volume (FEV) and maximal voluntary ventilation (MVV).

  2. To compare the observed values of FEV with predicted normals.

  3. To compare MVV values with others in your class.

Tasks Performed by the Student

BSL Lessons are designed to allow at least four students to record and save data in a normal lab period (60-90 minutes). Typically, labs work most efficiently with three or more students working together at each BSL station.

Noninvasive Blood Pressure System for MRI

The NIBP-A-MRI CareTaker4 system measures relative central arterial pressure to provide continuous, noninvasive “Beat-by-Beat” Blood Pressure from at rest humans (≥ 15 kg) in the MRI; measures include Diastolic, Systolic, Mean Arterial Pressure.; heart rate (HR) data is available. The system uses the scientific method of Pulse Decomposition Analysis (“PDA”). Key features Continuous, noninvasive monitoring […]
