INTRODUCTION The introductory text has not changed from the previously supplied lesson, but Fig. 12.2 was updated: Figure 12.2 Example of respiratory volumes and capacities WWW.BIOPAC.COM Lesson 12: Pulmonary Function I Page 3 II. EXPERIMENTAL OBJECTIVES The objectives have not changed from the previously supplied lesson. III. MATERIALS The materials have not changed from the previously supplied lesson. IV. EXPERIMENTAL METHODS Key to Symbols The symbols below are used to prompt you throughout Experimental Methods and Data Analysis. If you encounter a problem or need further explanation of a concept, refer to the Orientation Chapter for more details. ∇ The data collected in the associated step needs to be recorded in the Data Report (in the section indicated by the alpha character). You can record the data individually by hand or choose Edit > Journal > Paste measurements to paste data to your journal for future reference. You need to manually insert an event marker and key in a label similar to the text in quotes. You insert an event marker during acquisition by pressing “F9” and can insert or edit markers and labels once acquisition is completed. Each section of this lesson is presented in a two-column format, as described below. FAST TRACK STEPS This side of the lesson (left, shaded column) is the FAST TRACK through the lesson, and contains a basic explanation of each step. DETAILED EXPLANATION OF STEPS This side of the lesson contains more detailed information to clarify the steps and/or concepts in the FAST TRACK, and may include reference diagrams, illustrations, and screen shots.

Turn on the MP35/30 Data Acquisition Unit. Plugs into CH1 SS11LA Airflow Transducer Fig. 12.3 Set Up continues © BIOPAC Systems, Inc. Page 4 Biopac Student Lab 5. Place a filter onto the end of the calibration syringe. The filter is required for calibration and recording because it forces the air to move smoothly through the transducer. This assembly can be left connected for future use. You only need to replace the filter if the paper inside the filter tears. The bacteriological filter must be used between the transducer and calibration syringe in order for the data to be accurate. 6. Insert the Calibration Syringe/Filter Assembly into the airflow transducer (Fig. 12.4). IMPORTANT! Always insert on the side labeled “Inlet” Fig. 12.4 If using SS11LA transducer with removable, cleanable head, always insert syringe assembly on the transducer side labeled “Inlet” so that the transducer cable exits on the left, as shown in Fig. 12.4. • If using SS11L transducer with non-removable head, insert syringe assembly into the larger diameter port. IMPORTANT: If your lab sterilizes the airflow heads after each use, make sure a clean head is installed now. 7. Start the Biopac Student Lab program. 8. Choose Lesson 12 (L12-LUNG-1). 9. Type in your filename. 10. Click OK. Use a unique identifier. This ends the Set Up procedure. END OF SET UP WWW.BIOPAC.COM Lesson 12: Pulmonary Function I Page 5 B. CALIBRATION The calibration procedure establishes the hardware’s internal parameters (such as gain, offset, and scaling) and is critical for optimum performance. Pay close attention to the entire calibration procedure. FAST TRACK Calibration 1. Pull the Calibration Syringe Plunger all the way out and hold the Calibration Syringe/Filter Assembly upright (Fig. 12.5). NOTE: If you have previously calibrated the SS11LA Airflow Transducer for Lesson 12 or 13, and have not exited the BSL software or changed the transducer, BSL has saved the prior calibration data. - Go to Step 1 of the Recording Data section of this lesson if you wish to begin recording data. - Click Redo Calibration if you wish to recalibrate the transducer. DETAILED EXPLANATION OF CALIBRATION STEPS The Airflow Transducer is sensitive to gravity so it needs to be held upright throughout the calibration and recording. Airflow Transducer hangs freely off the end Airflow transducer held upright at all times Calibration Syringe Plunger Correct placement of hands Fig. 12.5 IMPORTANT: Never hold onto the airflow transducer handle when using the calibration syringe or the syringe tip may break. 2. Click Calibrate. The first calibration procedure stage will run for 8 seconds and end with an alert box. IMPORTANT: Leave the plunger extended and hold the assembly steady and upright during the entire calibration procedure. Do not touch the plunger because any pressure at this stage will cause inaccurate results. 3. Prepare for the second calibration stage. Stage 1 of the calibration procedure ends with an alert box asking if you have read the directions in the journal. Read the directions in Step 5 and/or the journal so that, once the second calibration procedure starts, you understand the procedures. 4. Click Yes after reading the alert box. Do not click on the Yes button until you are completely ready to proceed. When you click Yes, the second stage of the calibration procedure will begin, and will run until you click End Calibration. 5. Cycle the syringe plunger in and out completely 5 times (10 strokes). Hold the syringe assembly as shown in Fig. 12.5 above. 6. Click End Calibration. Use a rhythm of about 1 second per stroke with 2 seconds rest between strokes, i.e., push the plunger in for approximately 1 second, wait 2 seconds, pull the plunger out, wait 2 seconds, and repeat 4 more times. Click End Calibration when done. Note: The calibration procedure is required because of the complexity of the Airflow to Volume calculation. The accuracy of this conversion is aided by analyzing the airflow variations occurring over five complete cycles of the calibration syringe. Additional cycles would also help, but only with diminishing return rates. Five cycles turns out to be an adequate number of cycles for accurate calibration. Calibration continues… © BIOPAC Systems, Inc. Page 6 Biopac Student Lab 7. Check your calibration data. At the end of the calibration recording, your screen should resemble Fig. 12.6. Figure 12.6 If correct, go to the Data Recording section. If your data shows 5 downward deflections and 5 upward deflections, you may proceed to the Data Recording section. If incorrect, Redo Calibration. If the data shows any large spikes, then you must redo calibration by clicking Redo Calibration and repeating the entire calibration sequence. END OF CALIBRATION WWW.BIOPAC.COM Lesson 12: Pulmonary Function I Page 7 C. RECORDING LESSON DATA FAST TRACK Recording DETAILED EXPLANATION OF RECORDING STEPS 1. OPTIONAL: Validate Calibration: a) Click Record. b) Cycle the AFT6 syringe plunger in and out completely 5 times (10 strokes). c) Click Stop. d) Measure P-P on CH2 Volume to confirm the result is 0.6 liters (Fig. 12.7) e) Click Redo and proceed with Subject recording (or click Done and repeat calibration if necessary). 2. Prepare for the recording. IMPORTANT! Subject must be relaxed to obtain accurate measures. Figure 12.7 Calibration Validation shows P-P result 0.6 liters In order to work efficiently, read this entire section so you will know what to do for each recording segment. Following the procedure precisely is very important, as the calculation from airflow to volume is very sensitive. Subject should be seated, facing away from the computer monitor, relaxed, with eyes closed while you review the lesson. Check the last line of the journal and note the total amount of time available for the recording. Stop each recording segment as soon as possible so you don’t use an excessive amount of time (time is memory). Note: Residual Volume (RV) cannot be determined using a normal spirometer or airflow transducer, so the Biopac Student Lab software uses a default of 1 Liter. If 1 Liter of RV is not desired, see your Instructor to change the Preference. Hints for obtaining optimal data: a) Subject should be seated, facing away from the computer monitor, relaxed, with eyes closed. b) Subject should insert mouthpiece and begin breathing normally BEFORE the recording is started since the mouthpiece may influence normal values. c) Always insert on and breathe through the transducer side labeled “Inlet.” d) Keep the Airflow Transducer upright at all times (Fig. 12.11). e) A breath is considered a complete inhale-exhale cycle. If you start the recording on an inhale, try to end on an exhale, and viceversa. This is not absolutely critical, but does increase the accuracy of the Airflow to Volume calculation.

Breathe normally for 20 seconds through the Airflow Transducer BEFORE clicking Record. Page 9 A breath is considered a complete inhale-exhale cycle. Subject should be relaxed with eyes closed for “normal breathing.” Allow time for Subject to acclimate to the mouthpiece BEFORE clicking Record. IMPORTANT! Subject must remain relaxed and always breathe through the side labeled “Inlet” 6. Click Record. a) Breathe normally for 5 breaths. b) Inhale as deeply as you can. c) Exhale as deeply as you can. d) Breathe normally for 5 breaths. 7. Click Stop. Fig. 12.11 Keep the Airflow Transducer upright at all times For accurate measures, the Subject must be completely relaxed, with eyes closed, and breathing normally. The mouthpiece will influence the Subject’s breathing, so allow time for the Subject to acclimate to the mouthpiece BEFORE clicking Record. • A breath is considered a complete inhale-exhale cycle. Subject should be relaxed with eyes closed and not facing the computer. • If you start the recording on an inhale, try to end on an exhale, and vice-versa. As soon as the Stop button is pressed, the Biopac Student Lab software will automatically calculate volume data based on the recorded airflow data. At the end of the calculation, both waveforms will be displayed on the screen (Fig. 12.12). 8. Review the data on the screen. If correct, go to Step 7. Fig. Fig. 12.12 Your data should resemble Fig.12.12, showing a positive spike for inhalation and a negative spike for exhalation. If incorrect, click Redo. Recording continues… The data would be incorrect if you feel you didn’t follow the procedure precisely, i.e. you coughed or air escaped. In this case, you should redo the recording by clicking Redo and repeating Steps 5-8. Note that once you press Redo, the data you have just recorded will be erased. © BIOPAC Systems, Inc. Page 10 Biopac Student Lab 9. Click Done. After you press Done, your data will automatically be saved in the specified “Data Files” folder. A pop-up window with options will appear. Make your choice, and continue as directed. If choosing the “Record from another Subject” option: a) You will not need to recalibrate the airflow transducer. For this reason, we recommend that all recordings be completed before you proceed to Data Analysis. b) Remember to have each person use his/her own mouthpiece, bacterial filter and nose clip. c) Repeat Recording Steps 1-7 for each new Subject. d) Each person will need to use a unique file name.

DETAILED EXPLANATION OF DATA ANALYSIS STEPS Enter the Review Saved Data mode. Note channel number (CH) designations: Channel Displays CH 1 Airflow CH 2 Volume Fig. 12.13 Note: Airflow (Channel 1) and Volume (Channel 2) data are shown simultaneously. First, concentrate on the Volume data. 2. Turn OFF Channel 1, Airflow. Optional: Review Airflow data before turning Channel 1 off. 3. Set up the measurement boxes as follows: To toggle a channel ON/OFF, click on the channel number box and hold down the “Ctrl” key. The Airflow data does not have a lot of meaning for this lesson and may confusing at first glance, but it contains an interesting perspective on the recording. Note that the vertical scale of the airflow waveform is in Liters per second (Liters/sec.), and that the data is centered on zero. Looking at the graph, you can see that with each exhale, a downward pointing curve appears. The deeper an inhale, the larger the positive peak; the more forceful an exhale, the larger the negative peak. The measurement boxes are above the marker region in the data window. Each measurement has three sections: channel number, measurement type, and result. The first two sections are pull-down menus that are activated when you click on them. The following is a Channel Measurement CH 2 P-P CH 2 Max CH 2 Min P-P: finds the maximum value in the selected area and subtracts the minimum value found in the selected area.
