Current breathing flow estimation methods use tracheal breath sounds, but one step of the process, ‘breath phase (inspiration/expiration) detection’, is done by either assuming alternating breath phases or using a second acoustic channel of lung sounds. The alternating assumption is unreliable for long recordings, non-breathing events, such as apnea,(More)
: The objective of this study was to determine the risk of peanut allergy in siblings of peanut-allergic children. In 2005-2006, 560 households of children born in 1995 in the province of Manitoba, Canada, were surveyed. The index children (8-to 10-year-olds) were assessed by a pediatric allergist and had skin-prick testing and/or capRAST for peanut(More)
While automatic distinction between the two breath phases (inspiration/expiration) can be done easily using lung sounds' intensity, it is challenging to do the same using only tracheal breath sounds. The current acoustic flow estimation methods use tracheal breath sounds to estimate the amount of flow and the onset of breath but also use lung sounds for(More)
