What impact do Gas Standards on Flow or Volume measurements?


Feedback from biomedical engineers has shown us that many measurement errors of flow are caused by a mismatch between the gas standards used by the device under test (e.g. a medical ventilator) and the gas flow analyzer used for flow and volume testing.

Keep in mind both devices are measuring the same gas flow but each device can be set to apply an offset to the displayed values. Those offsets are convenient for the operator but they can be a challenge for the biomedical engineer.

The most commonly used gas standards for gas flow measurement are:

STP: Standard Temperature and Pressure – the device does a conversion based on a dry gas flow, at 21.1°C, and at an ambient pressure of 1013.25 mbar.

ATP: Ambient Temperature and Pressure – the device does a conversion based on gas flow at current humidity and temperature and local ambient pressure.

BTPS: Body Temperature and Pressure – the device does a conversion based on gas flow saturated with moisture (100% RH) at body temperature (37°C) and flowing at local ambient pressure.

However, there are many more gas standards in the industry and our analyzers can be set to apply any one of seventeen different standards.

Each manufacturer can stipulate which gas standard their device uses.  BTPS is often used in the ventilation environment.

 Here’s an example from the Swiss city called Buchs which is 450 meters above sea level (960mbar) at a sunny day with a temperature of 28°C and a relative humidity of 50%. The gas flow source, in this example, provides a steady flow of 100 liters per minute (LPM.)

When using the following gas standard, the measurement on a gas flow analyzer is:

STP: displays 100 LPM

ATP:  displays 110.19 LPM

BTPS: displays 119.04 LPM

The error can be 19% or in this example 19.04 liters per minute.  Which is why it is essential to select the same gas standard on each device before comparing their displayed measurement values…lesson learned!

Hi,

We’re wondering if you’d be interested in a ‘dofollow’ backlink to biomedical.blog from our website that has a Moz Domain Authority of 50?

Our website is dedicated to facts/education, and so can host articles on pretty much any topic.

You can either write a new article yourself, or we can link from existing content.

The fee is just $40 USD to be paid via Paypal. This is a one-time fee, so there are no extra charges and the link is permanent.

Also: Once the article has been published, and your backlink has been added, it will be shared out to almost 3 million social media followers (if it’s educationally based). This means you aren’t just getting the high valued backlink, you’re also getting the potential of more traffic to your site.

If you’re interested, please reply to this email, including the word ‘interested’ in the Subject Field.

Kind Regards,
Kylie
