Abstract:

A modified remote sampling system has been devised for the Bendix Model 17-210 time-of-flight mass spectrometer. This has been adapted for use in measuring respiratory gases breath by breath. The stability of the mass spectrometer output shows a variation of - 5. The sensitivity of the system for oxygen is in the range of 0.2 absolute concentration. The accuracy for oxygen is within - 5.
