OBJECTIVE We describe and test a novel device for large animal anaesthesia monitoring that uses standard human medicine spirometry sensors. STUDY DESIGN In-vitro study. METHODS The device consists of two adapters that enable the flow to be split evenly into four tubes in parallel, each tube containing a D-lite sensor. The performance of this flow partitioning device (FPD) over a range of flows from 100 to 700 L minute⁻¹ was determined and the pressure versus flow relation, resistance and… CONTINUE READING
