Differential Pressure Sensor Specifications

Using a 0 - 10 kPa differential pressure sensor, can I measure 70 - 80 kPa pressure changes or would that require a 0 - 100 kPa sensor?


I've actually used a MPXV5010DP (0 kPa to 10 kPa) sensor in this environment and it didn't work as well as I had hoped.  Wondering if it is the wrong sensor for the application.  Am I overpressurizing it?  I'm not sure if the differential pressure specification refers to a differential pressure "within" the specified range or if it means that it cancels out the differential pressure and is appropriate for a 10 kPa range. I actually need as much resolution as possible between 70 kPa and 71 kPa.
