Flow Measurement Principle P1 P2 Counter pressure sensor flow in flow out Electronic flow measurement principle - laminar flow restrictions create a pressure difference P 1 - flow is calculated from P 1 l Used with Oxygen, Side gas, Bypass, and Agent flows Laminar flow restriction P 1 Ambient pressure P2 P1 = pressure difference P2 = correction (off-set) to ambient pressure

12
Clinical Spirometry Pitot tubes measure the pressure difference created by the gas flow Knowing the amount of pressure difference allows the gas module to calculate flow Flow is mathematically integrated over time to calculate volume
