  • Publication number: 20220257142
    Abstract: An airway adapter forms a part of a breathing circuit that is connected to a test subject. A first cylindrical portion forms a male terminal that is fitted into a female member forming another part of the breathing circuit. A second cylindrical portion forms a female terminal that compartmentalizes a fitting portion into which a male member forming another part of the breathing circuit is fitted. An airway forming portion is disposed in an internal space compartmentalized by the first cylindrical portion, and forms an airway communicating with the fitting portion. A first sealing member is disposed on an outer circumferential surface of the first cylindrical portion and has higher flexibility than the first cylindrical portion.
