Respiration sounds of individual asthmatic patients were analysed in the scope of the development of a method for computerised recognition of the degree of airways obstruction. Respiration sounds were recorded during laboratory sessions of allergen provoked airways obstruction, during several stages of advancing obstruction. The technique of artificial(More)
For continuous monitoring of the respiratory condition of patients, e.g., at the intensive care unit, computer assistance is required. Existing mechanical devices, such as the peak expiratory flow meter, provide only with incidental measurements. Moreover, such methods require cooperation of the patient, which at, e.g., the ICU is usually not possible. The(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the changes that occurred in the clinical asthma score (CAS) correlated with the changes in the respiratory electromyographic (EMG) activity over the days during admission to hospital in dyspneic infants and toddlers. Sixteen infants and toddlers (9 males) were studied during admission and 7 days after(More)
We analysed respiration sounds of individual asthmatic patients, in the scope of the development of a method for computerized recognition of the degree of airway obstruction. Respiration sounds were recorded during laboratory sessions of histamine-provoked airway obstruction. We applied an interpolation technique using supervised artificial neural networks(More)
This paper concerns the analysis of adventitious sounds produced by individual asthmatic patients, and relates the sounds to the degree of airways obstruction at the moment of sound recording. In this study, airways obstruction is represented by a parameter commonly used in clinical tests, the forced expiratory volume in one second. A nonrestrictive(More)
The characteristics and diagnostics of wheezing during induced airway obstruction are well documented. The present study addressed (a) the characteristics of spontaneous wheezing with respect to a possible distinction between wheezes during in vivo versus induced airway obstruction, and (b) the relationship between in vivo wheezing and fluctuations in peak(More)
