Peter T Macklem, Cheng Li Que, Suzanne M Kelly, Krzystof Kolmaga, Louis Gilles Durand: Phonospirometry for non-invasive monitoring of respiration. Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal, McGill University, James Anglehart, Swabey Ogilvy Renault, June 5, 2001: US06241683 (335 worldwide citation)

To compensate for the poor signal-to-noise ratio when transforming a patient tracheal sound signal into a respiration flow signal, the transformed signal is used when the sound signal is above a threshold, and interpolated values are used when the sound signal is below the threshold. A volume of bre ...
