Abstract : The Total Data Reporting Accessory available for the Beckman Metabolic Measurement Cart has characteristics which limit its use in a research laboratory. Storage of test results and retrieval for subsequent analysis is awkward. In addition, metabolic data from only one individual can be measured during a given test. This is a serious limitation when two or more persons participate in the same experiment. Software modifications which have been made to overcome these difficulties are described. Keywords: Metabolic rate; Respiratory data; Oxygen consumption; Canada.
