Breath Rate Sensor – PASPORT

Product Code: PS-2187


The Breath Rate Sensor measures breath rate by sensing the pressure change within a standard, disposable dust mask. It generates consistently stable output, even when used during exercise. The sensor’s tubing connects to the disposable pressure clips that fasten to the sides of the mask.

Two modes:

  • One reading every breath
  • Running average over last four breadths

Educational Use Only

This is not a medical device. PASCO products are designed for educational use only and should not be used in any apparatus involved with life support, medical testing, patient diagnosis, or industrial control/testing systems.

How It Works

The Breath Rate Sensor measures breathing rate before, during, and after exercise. Measurements are digitally sent to a computer or datalogger, where they’re displayed and recorded for analysis. The sensor detects each breath by monitoring changes in air pressure within a mask worn by the subject. It measures the time between exhalations to determine breath rate. This sensor outputs measurements for breath rate and average breath rate.
