Measurement of gas flow and airway pressure at the Y-piece of an endotracheal tube provides valuable information about airway integrity and basic pulmonary function [1]. We describe the working principle and design of the D-lite sensor (Datex Division, Instrumentarium Corporation, Helsinki, Finland), which, in a single, lightweight adaptor piece, encloses flow, airway pressure, and sidestream gas measurement. The main emphasis in the design of this instrument was on reliable and accurate… CONTINUE READING
