In order to assess depth of anesthesia, hypo and hyper 
ventilatory syndrome and also to monitor pCO2 in arterial blood 
during animal experiments involving surgery, end-tidal CO2 
measurement is very important. We developed Micro-capnometer that 
utilizes low air sample flow rates (5 ml/min) and is suitable for 
small animals (rats and mice). It also measures the respiration 
rate by counting the period from the wave pattern of CO2 
concentration. The device can be interfaced with IBM compatible 
computer via RS-232 option to provide automated data collection.
