O2 consumption by primates

O2 consumption by primates

O2 consumption by primates

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

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.

RE: O2 consumption by primates

The inlet / outlet measurement also requires measuring the air flow rate.  I suspect that the total error in the three signals and the associated calculations may be imprecise.
