Objective pulmonary function (PF) evaluation is essential for the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of many pediatric respiratory diseases as seen in the emergency room, intensive care, and outpatient settings. In this paper, the development and testing of a new noninvasive PF instrument, pneuRIPTM, which utilizes respiratory inductance plethysmography (RIP) are discussed. The pneuRIPTM hardware includes a small circuit board that connects to the RIP bands and measures and wirelessly… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • For BPM the pneuRIPTM is shown to be more accurate than the respitrace when compared to manually counting the breaths: 13.2% versus 36.4% accuracy for normal breathing and 16.9% versus 60.7% accuracy for breathing under load, respectively.
