BACKGROUND Monitoring the mechanics of breathing in patients with advanced chronic obstructive lung diseases prior to lung transplantation is useful to characterize changes in the mechanical properties of the lungs. On-line methods of monitoring immediately process the data for clinical decisions. However, the few available methods are so far limited to monitor respiratory mechanics in ventilator-dependent patients. We investigated whether on-line monitoring of the lung mechanics, including… CONTINUE READING
