A respiratory transducer based on the constant temperature anemometry principle has been developed for respiratory monitoring, and as a tool for bedside evaluation of pulmonary function. The transducer is characterized by a dynamic range from 0-2.5 1/s and an upper limiting frequency of 50 Hz. It is designed with a view to a low pressure drop of 2.5 mbar/1/s and a minimum dead space of 5 ml. The transducer has been tested using a generally applicable procedure which includes both static and… CONTINUE READING
