Accuracy of breath-by-breath analysis of flow-volume loop in identifying sleep-induced flow-limited breathing cycles in sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome.

Abstract

1. Inspiratory flow limitation is involved in the pathophysiology of sleep-related breathing disorders. Since the definition of flow-limited cycle is based on a dissociation between flow and respiratory efforts, identification of inspiratory flow limitation requires upper airway or intrathoracic pressure measurements. We examined the accuracy of the… (More)
