Metabolic Rate Calculator

Metabolic Rate Calculator

Baed on findings of measurements of metabolism on huge samples of healthy population, empirical formulas were suggested that enable to calculate expected basal metabolic rate from age, sex and body size. Use the calculator to find your expected basal metabolism. Baed on findings of measurements of metabolism on huge samples of healthy population, empirical formulas were suggested that enable to calculate expected basal metabolic rate from age, sex and body size.

Ultrasonography - diagnostics in medicine

Ultrasonography - diagnostics in medicine

A presentation discusses usage of ultrasound imaging as diagnostic method in medicine. In the beginning basic physical principles of ultrasound are presented. Then we show different ultrasound findings (images) which represent basic types of ultrasound examination. Part of not reflected waves goes through the boundary and changes its direction in the same ratio as the ratio between propagation velocities in the environments in question.

Oxygen consumption estimation (animation)

Oxygen consumption estimation (animation)

One-page interective animation (Flash) explaining how to estimate O2 consumption from Minute Ventilation (measured) and O2 concentration in expired air (measured). The Physiology lab procedure "Metabolic rate measurement" is based on this principle. Measurement of the rate of oxygen consumption provides a simple, versatile and powerful tool for estimating the rate of heat release in fire experiments and fire tests. The method is based on the generalization that the heats of combustion per unit of oxygen consumed are approximately the same for most fuels commonly encountered in fires.
