  journal={Int. J. Meas. Technol. Instrum. Eng.},
In this paper, the authors prove that variations in thoracic volumes are greatly responsive to the act of breathing i.e., inspiration and expiration. These variations may be adopted for diagnosing various respiration related diseases and pulmonary edema. In this study, the authors present a method to estimate the thoracic volume non-invasively using anthropometric dimensions. The change in the geometry of thorax with the act of breathe is recorded by measuring the anthropometric parameters for…
