Abstract
Measurement of metabolic parameters at rest and exercise is fundamental to the research conducted by the members of the Human Performance and Protection Sector of DCIEM. These data are normally measured by a metabolic measurement system consisting of gas analysers, a flow transducer and computer based data acquisition. Currently, there are numerous variations of hardware and software in use by the sector. As the operator must become familiarized with a variety of systems, the problems of inter-system variability and operator error are introduced. Furthermore, the compiled software was not malleable or available for verification of the metabolic calculations. As a result of these concerns, a new customized metabolic measurement software was developed. This software can be easily configured to work with any hardware system, is easy to learn, and adaptable to any future requirements. The following documentation is intended as a user manual, detailing the operation of the DCIEM/HPP Metabolic Measurement Software v 1.0.
