Anne M Street, Matthew G Fishler: Method for monitoring heart failure via respiratory patterns. Pacesetter, Steven M Mitchell, July 8, 2003: US06589188 (166 worldwide citation)

Detection and monitoring of periodic breathing (PB) to provide an indication of changes in the hemodynamic status of a heart failure patient is accomplished by monitoring at least one of four independent physiologic parameters. The physiologic parameters are respiratory tidal volume, respiratory rat ...
