NASA technology benefits cardio-pulmonary patients

http://www.azosensors.com/news.aspx?newsID=5350 PUMA measures six components to evaluate metabolic function: oxygen and carbon¬†dioxide partial pressure, volume flow rate, heart rate, and gas pressure and temperature. From those measurements, PUMA can compute the oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide output and minute ventilation (average expired gas flow rate). A small, embedded computer takes readings of each sensor and relays […]
