Abstract
The need for an instrument to measure oxygen consumption to determine energy expenditure by indirect calorimetry at the job site under all work conditions is presented, with the characteristics of such an instrument. Evaluation of available devices in relation to stated requirements for breath-to-breath analysis and interval averaging is used to indicate the necessary components of the monitor. A portable metabolic monitor is described which is of recent European manufacture and design and which appears to meet all the major design requirements, with the exception of a flow meter.
