The usual setup for measuring respiratory input impedance requires a differential pressure transducer attached to a pneumotachograph. Because no data correction procedure has been devised to account for transducer asymmetry, a highly symmetrical transducer is required to obtain reliable impedance data. Here, a general model for the measuring system is presented. Its main feature is that differential pressure transducers are modeled as two-input-one-output systems. From the theoretical model, a… CONTINUE READING
