Novel approach to computerized breath detection in lung function diagnostics.

Summary of "Novel approach to computerized breath detection in lung function diagnostics."

Breath detection, i.e. its precise delineation in time is a crucial step in lung function data analysis as obtaining any clinically relevant index is based on the proper localization of breath ends. Current threshold or smoothing algorithms suffer from severe inaccuracy in cases of suboptimal data quality. Especially in infants, the precise analysis is of utmost importance. The key objective of our work is to design an algorithm for accurate breath detection in severely distorted data.
