The Oxymax Eco can be configured for positive or negative ventilation of a single subject. Flows between 100 mL/Min and 15,000 LPM are supported. The instrument supports all of the facilities of the Oxymax Equal Flow System with the limitation of working with only a single subject. The Oxymax Eco can be upgraded to support multiple subjects and provides a low cost entry into calorimetric measurements while providing the possibility of adding features to meet increasing demand.
