With the advent of a pneumatic computative device, programmed to allow any conceivable form of mixed diffusive and convective intrapulmonary barometric control, a means for analysis had to be created. Existing CRT device was, for the most part, large and expensive because of analog design. With percussive frequencies above 15 hertz, the wave form was often distorted causing confusion relative to the true proximal airway pressure wave form.
