High-frequency Oscillatory Ventilation Monitoring Method and System
A method of monitoring high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) wherein the oscillatory movement of the chest wall of an individual is measured. An average amplitude is determined and compared to a pre-determined baseline amplitude, which is established by using the average amplitude at a particular instant of time. If the variance between the average amplitude and the baseline meets and/or exceeds a pre-determined threshold above or below the baseline value, an operator is alerted.
