    Question Measurement of K factor

    Is there a simple practical way to measure the K factor that is used in the FO2 calculations of passive SCRs?
    Average is 25, range is 15-30.

    K = Ventilation Coefficent Factor =
    Ratio of the respiratory minute volume Vv [liter] to the Oxygen consumed by the body VvO2 [bar*liter] = Vv/VvO2
    Vv can be measured with traditional scuba but what about Vv02?
    Any sugestions?
    Thanks

    I wonder whether the answer is simple.
    You measure the amount of oxygen in the inspired air. You measure the amount of oxygen in the air exhaled. You have a volume of oxygen that was used. How to specify the volume of ventilation is a husband, all data for K.
