Abstract: The assessment of mechanical ventilator performance is a complex task requiring measurement of a number of different transducers under a variety of conditions. The use of dedicated testing equipment can alleviate the complexity of the experimental apparatus. This paper assesses the accuracy and versatility of the Biotek VT-1 and VT-2 dedicated ventilator testers. Results show that the testers perform within the manufacturer's specifications and have the required flexibility to be used in investigating faults reported with ventilators.
