New method to measure interbreath intervals in infants for the assessment of apnoea and respiration
Background Respiratory disorders, including apnoea, are common in preterm infants due to their immature respiratory control compared with term-born infants. However, our inability to accurately measure respiratory rate in hospitalised infants results in unreported episodes of apnoea and an incomplete picture of respiratory activity.
Methods We develop, validate and use a novel algorithm to identify interbreath intervals (IBIs) and apnoeas in preterm infa... Expand abstract
