The change in resistance gives the change in the output voltage of the Wheatstone bridge. The output of the viscosity sensor is shown in the Fig.3
Piezoresistive materials as strain gauge are deposited in Wheatstone bridge configuration on top of diaphragm to measure the strain exerted on the diaphragm by the air pressure as shown in Figure 5.
The conventional piezoresistive pressure sensor chip functions as a Wheatstone bridge, formed by four diffused or ion implanted strain gauges in the thin silicon diaphragm.
To do this, a Wheatstone bridge circuit must be created.

The inclusion of Wheatstone bridge emulation, which duplicates a standard pellistor output, this also means that existing cables and control devices, from the majority of manufacturers, can still be used.
As the molecules are oxidized, heat is generated changing the cell's resistance as measured by a Wheatstone bridge circuit.
An alternative way of describing the process is to say that the wires are heated by means of a current as an external resistance component of a Wheatstone bridge. As the patient blows through the pneumotach, the resultant cooling of the wires causes a decrease in electrical resistance.
Series 2 for dry-air applications acts directly on the silicon chip and comes into contact with the strain gauges of the Wheatstone bridge. Series 4 acts on the rear side of the silicon chip; is for wet or dry applications.
