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.
