O2 consumption by primates O2 consumption by primates RDawg (Mechanical) (OP) 3 Dec 07 18:25 I am looking for instrumentation to measure oxygen consumed by primates during exercise. We are unable to attach the device to the monkey so we will construct a containment vessel. RE: O2 consumption by primates itsmoked (Electrical) 3 Dec 07 19:41 Two O2 sensors. One on the air inlet and one on the air outlet. Solve for the delta. Set it up so you can, with the flip of a lever, swap which is sensing which outlet. Then drift and calibration can be offset easily.

I suspect that the total error in the three signals and the associated calculations may be imprecise.
