Abstract

Respiratory Inductance Plethysmography (RIP) has become popular in critical care respiratory monitoring. However, the primary use has been in the evaluation of breathing pattern, and there has been little emphasis placed upon looking at the shape of the respiratory curves, which closely resemble volume curves. We introduce a new method of loop analyses, which is potentially useful in diagnosing the airway function and quantitating phase lag between diaphragmatic and rib cage compartments of breathing in infants and children.
