Evaluation of a constant temperature hot wire anemometer for respiratory gas flow measurements

Evaluation of a constant temperature hot wire anemometer for respiratory gas flow measurements

Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing 17(2): 211-215

The performance of a constant-temperature hot-wire anemometer for respiratory gas-flow measurement was investigated. The anemometer satisfies common demands for accuracy, response time and insensitivity to humidity and temperature variations. A calibration method is suggested that permits correction for variation of the flowmeter signal caused by changes in the gas composition. A procedure for linearization of the flowmeter signal as a function of flow rate is presented.
