Airflow Subject Interface for MRI

MR Safe airflow interface
Part #: AFT35-MRI

The AFT35-MRI is a low profile mouthpiece and non-rebreathing T-valve assembly specifically designed to fit inside an fMRI head coil.*

Use the AFT35-MRI to perform the following airflow and lung volume tests:

  • End Tidal CO2
  • VO2 max
  • Breath-by-breath Air Flow
  • Breath-by-breath Volume
  • Metabolic Studies

The assembly includes a Luer lock port for easy interface to AFT31-MRI gas sampling tubing for CO2 and O2 gas analysis. The assembly interfaces with AFT7/7-L tubing, via the AFT11A coupler, for operation with the TSD117-MRI ±300 L/min airflow transducer. Extra mouthpiece included.

Details

Compatibility


Low clearance—only 25 mm between subject and coil

Dimensions: 25 mm breathing port height (excluding mouthpiece) x 35 mm outlet port diameter x 83 mm wide x 115 mm long

*Head coil fit: Fit is fine with 32-channel head coils; to encourage a better fit in 20-channel and 64-channel head coils, a shortening (cut via snips) of the flexible snorkel mouthpiece may be required.

Deadspace: 88 ml

Materials: Thermoplastic body; silicone inlet filter and mouthpiece; nylon male Luer; polypropylene female Luer

Sterilization: Cidex® recommended

Sample Setups

Perform a variety of tests. Place transducer outside the bore in the MRI Chamber Room and run tubing to connect to the subject and breathing accessories; place amp in Control Room.

  • End Tidal CO2: C02100C amp + AFT31-MRI tubing + AFT35-MRI airflow interface
  • Airflow & Lung Volume: DA100C amp + MECMRI-DA cable/filter set + TSD117-MRI transducer + AFT11A coupler + AFT7-L tubing + AFT35-MRI
  • Airflow & Lung Volume with End Tidal CO2: DA100C + MECMRI-DA + TSD117-MRI + AFT11A + AFT7-L + AFT35-MRI + AFT31-MRI + CO2100C
  • Metabolic: DA100C + MECMRI-DA + TSD117-MRI + 2 x AFT11A + 2 x AFT7-L + AFT35-MRI + AFT31-MRI + AFT15A/B + C02100C and/or O2100C

MRI Use: MR Safe (see Specifications for components)

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
