Respiratory Effort Transducer, BSL
Part #: SS5LB

The SS5LB records respiratory effort. The transducer is a rugged strain assembly that measures the change in thoracic or abdominal circumference. The transducer presents minimal resistance to movement and is extremely unobtrusive. Due to its novel construction, the SS5LB can measure extremely slow respiration patterns with no loss in signal amplitude while maintaining excellent linearity and minimal hysteresis. The conductance of the gauge is linear with applied linear stretch; for very small linear stretch, the conductance versus stretch is quite linear.

The transducer is attached by a fully adjustable nylon strap that allows the transducer to fit almost any circumference. It connects to an MP3X input channel. Additional straps available (RX-STRAP-RSP) to allow for disinfection between subjects without any down time—use extra straps with transducer while washing previously worn straps.

Used in BSL Lessons 8 and 9.
