Estimates of ventilation from inductance plethysmography in sleeping asthmatic patients.

Abstract

To assess the accuracy of the respiratory inductance plethysmograph (RIP) for monitoring ventilation during sleep-associated bronchoconstriction, five adult patients with nocturnal worsening of their asthma were monitored overnight in the sleep laboratory. Three of the five patients demonstrated episodic paradoxic respiratory motion of the lower rib cage… (More)
