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.

EDA Smart Amplifier

Easily record great electrodermal activity (EDA, GSR) data. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by amplifying the physiological signal close to the subject, which allows a high-level voltage connection to the data acquisition system and reduces noise artifact. AcqKnowledge Smart Amp setup includes guides and prompts to prevent […]
