Equine Lung Function Testing Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University is the only facility in New England with a non-invasive device for diagnosing equine respiratory problems. Their first respiratory device, was cumbersome and expensive, leading to a partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) to improve the aspects of this design. Following the work of a previous WPI design team and that of Dr. Mazan of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, our team refined the display and functionality of LabVIEW code for analysis, and developed improvements to the design to house a Rev C sensor, used for data acquisition. The result of this project is a lightweight, cost effective, and reproducible mask design capable of producing consistent and accurate measurements of respiratory function.
