A new FOT set-up for the assessment of respiratory system mechanics in mechanically ventilated infants

Abstract

The assessment of respiratory system mechanics in mechanically ventilated newborns would help in tailoring the ventilatory settings. The Forced Oscillations Technique (FOT) is a non-invasive method for the measurement of the mechanical properties of the respiratory system. The aim of the present work was to develop a measurement set-up suitable to apply FOT… (More)
