Effects of inspiratory loading on the chaotic dynamics of ventilatory flow in humans
Effects of hypercapnia and hypocapnia on ventilatory variability and the chaotic dynamics of ventilatory flow in humans.
The results suggest that chemoreceptors exert a strong influence on ventilatory variability and complexity, however, complexity persists in the quasi-absence of automatic drive.
Analysis of Ventilatory Pattern Variability
This work has developed analytical tools to distinguish and assess linear and nonlinear sources of VPV and applied these analytic techniques to assess breathing pattern before and after vagotomy, cerebral ischemia, and lung injury.
Respiratory inductive plethysmography to assess respiratory variability and complexity in humans
Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist Increases Respiratory Variability and Complexity in Acute Respiratory Failure
Compared with PSV, NAVA increases the breathing pattern variability and complexity of flow, whereas the complexity of EAdi is unchanged, whether this improves clinical outcomes remains to be determined.
Chaotic Signatures of Heart Rate Variability and Its Power Spectrum in Health, Aging and Heart Failure
Noise titration of running short-segment Holter tachograms from healthy subjects revealed circadian-dependent heartbeat chaos that was linked to the HF component (respiratory sinus arrhythmia) and relative ‘HF chaos’ levels were similar in young and elderly subjects despite proportional age-related decreases in HF and LF power.
Vagal-dependent nonlinear variability in the respiratory pattern of anesthetized, spontaneously breathing rats.
Both vagal and dorsolateral pontine influences contribute to nonlinear respiratory pattern variability in urethane-anesthetized, spontaneously breathing adult rats, and breathing dynamics of the intact system are mutually dependent onvagal and pontine sources of nonlinear complexity.
Significance of using a nonlinear analysis technique, the Lyapunov exponent, on the understanding of the dynamics of the cardiorespiratory system in rats.
A method was proposed to determine the diagnostic and prognostic values of the cardiorespiratory system of rats using the arrangement of the PNCG and Lyapunov exponents, which may be monitored as vitality indicators.


Respiratory influences on non-linear dynamics of heart rate variability in humans
HRV dynamics were chaotic when respiration was forced with a deterministic non-chaotic pattern and that normal spontaneous respiratory influences might mask the normally chaotic pattern in HRV.
Is the pattern of breathing at rest chaotic? A test of the Lyapunov exponent.
The pattern of breathing is described to be fractal on the basis of the linearity of the log spectral power versus log frequency relationship (6) during exercise and the linear (so-called 1/f) relationship suggests a long-term correlation.
Fractal fluctuations in human respiration.
The results indicate that, in most cases, apparently random fluctuations in respiratory pattern are, in fact, correlated over more than one time scale, and suggest that fractal fluctuations in breath number, respiratory period, and breath amplitude are controlled by separate processes.
Is breathing in infants chaotic? Dimension estimates for respiratory patterns during quiet sleep.
The dynamics of infant breathing during quiet sleep can best be described as a nonlinear dynamic system with large- scale, low-dimensional and small-scale, high-dimensional behavior; more specifically, a noise-driven nonlinear system with a two-dimensional periodic orbit.
Nonlinear Measures of Respiration: Respiratory Irregularity and Increased Chaos of Respiration in Patients with Panic Disorder
The findings support the previously described respiratory irregularity in patients with panic disorder and illustrate the utility of nonlinear measures such as APEN and LLE as additional measures toward a better understanding of the abnormalities of respiratory physiology in similar patient populations.
Vagal afferent activity increases dynamical dimension of respiration in rats.
The results indicate that the central respiratory pattern of the anesthetized vagotomized rat behaves primarily as a single degree-of-freedom oscillator, which can be moved into a regime of low-order chaos in the presence of feedback from pulmonary stretch receptors, contributing significantly to the variability observed in the respiratory patterns of the vagi-intact animal.
Decrease of cardiac chaos in congestive heart failure
Electrocardiograms from a group of healthy subjects and those with severe congestive heart failure suggest that cardiac chaos is prevalent in healthy heart, and a decrease in such chaos may be indicative of CHF.
Approximate entropy of human respiratory movement during eye-closed waking and different sleep stages.
Respiratory movement and EEG signals are more regular during stage IV sleep than during other stages of consciousness, suggesting the involvement of nonlinear dynamic processes in the coordination between brain and lungs.

The equations provide means for mapping Silnikov bifurcations that alter the geometry and dimension of the breathing pattern and formalisms for discussing RCPG processing of afferent information.
Effect of sighs on breathing memory and dynamics in healthy infants.
Control of breathing in healthy infants shows long-range stability and improvement in short-range memory and variability after a sigh, adding new evidence that the role of sighs is not purely mechanical.
