Abstract:
Respiratory movements monitoring is critical in ensuring optimal patient supervision, especially in critical cases and also in diagnosing sleep apnea syndrome.The aim of our paper is to assess the possible role of magnetic impedance (MI) effect in respiratory movements recording.The study was carried out on 6 volunteers using a special mat equipped with quasi-non-contact MI sensors. Evaluation consisted in monitoring and recording the amplitude and frequency of the respiratory movements during normal breathing and while performing Valsalva maneuver.The constancy of pattern and amplitude of waves recorded suggests that this kind of respiratory movement monitoring may have considerable clinical application in monitoring critical patients and also sleep disorders, especially for children suspected of sleep apnea. Keywords: Amorphous Ferromagnetic Materials, Magneto impedance, Sensor, Breathing, Apnea
