• Integrator Module for recording area under curve (e.g., Respiratory Tidal Volume, Cardiac Minute Volume) on an analogue recording device • Includes maximum tracking The Integrator Module INT is used to calculate the area under the curve of an input signal in the PLUGSYS system. The module readily provides time or stroke integration of periodic physiological signals or other time-related parameters. Examples for Integration: • From the Respiratory Curve – Respiratory Minute Volume – Respiratory Tidal Volume • From the Aortic Flow Curve – Cardiac Minute Volume – Stroke Volume – Cardiac Output (C.O.) The input signal is provided either from a PLUGSYS Preamplifier Module such as the Carrier Frequency Amplifier CFBA with a differential pressure transducer and a pneumotachometer connected for airflow or from a Transit Time Ultrasonic Flowmeter TTFM for aortic flow, via the PLUGSYS bus system or from a PLUGSYS external preamplifier over the external input on the front panel. The output signal from maximum tracking is available on the system bus.
