Description

Various technologies have been used to measure airway flow for human respiration. This paper presents a flow sensor (pneumotach} that is capable of continuous, bi-directional airway flow measurement proximal to the patient and used in a critical care environment. This paper presents some of the findings of the research that was done in the development of a n~w flow sensor for long term flow monitoring in the critical care environment.
