ABSTRACT SAMPLE


EQUIPMENT FOR PARTIAL OXYGEN PRESSURE MEASUREMENT DURING INTERMITTENT HYPOXIC TRAINING (IHT)

IHT has become popular in Russia and Ukraine, and special devices have been developed for its administration. One of the most important aspects of such devices is accurate and dependable measurement of oxygen partial pressure in expired air while transcutaneously measuring oxygen partial pressure (PO2) in arterial blood. Two novel elements of this work are (1) the application of pulse methods of oxygen sensor polarization in the technology for optimal PO2 sensor design and (2) improvement of processing output signals to improve the metrological characteristics. Application of this novel polarization method causes minimal sensor influence on the steady-state processes in biological objects, thus increasing the measurement accuracy and ensuring prompt reaction of the device to changes in external factors. Owing to high operation speed, the device can be used for measuring lung ventilation parameters and blood vessel response to irritation. In using pulse polarization techniques, an optimal device design, device-manufacturing technology, and a relevant mathematical processing of measurement results is selected. The apparatus has the potential to be widely used in many areas of experimental and clinical medicine that require PO2 values.
