This paper defines a method for optimizing the breath delineation algorithms used in Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). In lung EIT the identification of the breath phases is central for generating tidal impedance variation images, subsequent data analysis and clinical evaluation. The optimisation of these algorithms is particularly important in neonatal care since the existing breath detectors developed for adults may give insufficient reliability in neonates due to their very irregular breathing patte...
The measurement of trimethylamine and isoprene in exhaled breath collected from dialysed patients indicates the changes in concentration of both compounds during dialysis. The aim of the presented study was to confirm diagnostic usefulness of TMA and isoprene detected in breath, as potential biomarkers of hemodialysis efficiency.
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.
The performance of elite breath hold divers (BHD) includes static breath hold for more than 11 minutes, swimming as far as 300 m, or going below 250 m in depth, all on a single breath of air. Diving mammals are adapted to sustain oxidative metabolism in hypoxic conditions through several metabolic adaptations, including improved capacity for oxygen transport and mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation in skeletal muscle. It was hypothesized that similar adaptations characterized human BHD. Hence, the purpos...
Fructose malabsorption is commonly diagnosed by the hydrogen fructose (H2) breath test. However, the mechanisms behind fructose malabsorption in humans are not well understood and the clinical relevance of this test is considered controversial. Hence, the main aim of this study is to evaluate the predictive value of the H2 breath test.
Intestinal gases are currently used for the diagnosis of disorders including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and carbohydrate malabsorption.
Breath sound parameters have been suggested to be new biomarkers of airway function in patients with asthma.
We investigated the impact of the ingestion of two green kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa var. Hayward) and one Royal Gala apple on breath hydrogen and methane production in humans. Consumption of two green kiwifruit led to no evidence of carbohydrate malabsorption (0/20), whereas consumption of one apple was associated with carbohydrate malabsorption in 6/20 participants (P = .008). There were no significant differences in the area under the curve for hydrogen or methane breath concentrations after consu...
Neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs) are incapacitating disorders that result in progressive motor and cognitive impairment. These disease include Alzheimer's disease the most common cause of dementia, frontotemporal dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, dementia with Lewy bodies, Parkinson's, Huntington's, Friedreich's ataxia, and prion disease. Dementia causing NDDs impose a high social and economic burden on communities around the world. Rapid growth in knowledge regarding the pathogenic mechanisms and d...
The single breath hold maneuver for measuring lung diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) and nitric oxide (DLNO) incorporates multiple sources of variability. This study examined how changes in intrathoracic pressure, inhalation time, and breath hold time affect DLCO, DLNO, alveolar-capillary membrane conductance (DmCO) and pulmonary capillary blood volume (Vc) at rest and during submaximal exercise. Thirteen healthy subjects (mean ± SD; age = 26 ± 3y) performed duplicate tests at rest...
Cerebrovascular reactivity (CR) is an ideal biomarker to detect cerebrovascular damage. CR can be quantified by measuring changes in cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) resulting from a CO vasodilatory stimulus, often using the breath-holding index (BHI). In this method, transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound is used to measure CBFV changes in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) during a breath-hold maneuver. Despite its convenience, BHI has high variability. Changing body position may contribute to potential ...
The main goal of this study was to determine the reliability of hand-held breath alcohol analysers currently approved for roadside screening of traffic offenders. The first part of the study included a retrospective data analysis of 714 offence records collected in 2011. Blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) obtained from the offenders 0-303 min after the police had screened them for breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) were back-calculated (cBAC) to assess the accuracy of breathalyser screening. All participan...
Measurement of Lung Clearance Index (LCI) by Multiple Breath Washout (MBW) is a sensitive method for monitoring of lung disease in Cystic Fibrosis (CF). To compare NMBW and SFMBW, we connected these two gas analysis systems in series to obtain truly simultaneous measurements, with no differences other than the gas used.
Asthma and allergic diseases are heterogeneous. Measurement of biomarkers in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) may help to discriminate between different phenotypes and may assist with clinical prognostication.
To develop and validate a data processing technique that allows phase-contrast MRI-based 4D flow imaging of the aortic valve in a single breath-hold.
Acetaldehyde is causally related to head and neck cancer. Individuals with aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 deficiency experience alcohol sensitivity and are referred to as "flushers" because of their skin-flushing response to high blood acetaldehyde levels after alcohol consumption. Acetaldehyde is produced in the oral cavity after local alcohol exposure without alcohol ingestion. However, the relationship between the oral acetaldehyde level after local alcohol exposure and alcohol sensitivity is unclear. Herein, ...
The 13C-urea breath test is the main non-invasive test for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection. The availability of this test throughout the country is limited, mainly due to the difficulty in obtaining the labeled isotope from abroad. Recently, researchers from the Nuclear Energy Center in Agriculture at the University of São Paulo (CENA/USP) succeeded in synthesizing 13C-enriched urea for Helicobacter pylori diagnosis. The aim of the study was to compare the performance of the 13C-urea breath ...
Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) instruments provide researchers and clinicians with a vast amount of information on sample composition, thus these instruments are seen as gold standard in breath analysis research. However, there are many factors that can confound the data measured by GC-MS instruments. These factors will make interpretation of GC-MS data unreliable for breath analysis research. We present in this paper detailed studies of two of these factors: instrument variation over time and...
Influenza is one of the most common causes of virus diseases worldwide. Virus detection requires determination of Influenza RNA in the upper respiratory tract. Efficient screening is not possible in this way. Analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath holds promise for non-invasive and fast monitoring of disease progression. Breath VOC profiles of 14 (3 controls and 11 infected animals) swine were repeatedly analyzed during a complete infection cycle of Influenza A under high safety conditions....
Compressed-sensing (CS) accelerated 3D MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) could be acquired in both navigator-triggered (NT) and breath-hold (BH) mode, but the latter has been considered inferior in depicting pancreatic duct and diagnosing pancreatic duct-related diseases.
The primary aim of this study was to examine the impact of deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) amplitude on subsequent mean heart dose and V30 during radiotherapy. The secondary aim was to investigate if patient age influenced DIBH amplitude.
Toxicology and bedside medical condition monitoring is often desired to be both ultrasensitive and noninvasive. However, current biomarker analyses for these purposes are mostly offline and fail to detect low marker quantities. Here, we report a system called dLABer (detection of living animal's exhaled breath biomarker) that integrates living rats, breath sampling, microfluidics, and biosensors for the automated tracking of breath-borne biomarkers. Our data show that dLABer could selectively detect (online...
The main focus of this pilot study is to develop a statistical approach that is suitable to model data obtained by different detection methods. The methods used in this study examine the possibility to detect early breast cancer (BC) by exhaled breath and urine samples analysis. Exhaled breath samples were collected from 48 breast cancer patients and 45 healthy women that served as a control group. Urine samples were collected from 37 patients who were diagnosed with breast cancer based on physical or mammo...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a devastating progressive lung disease affecting the parenchyma. Nitrogen multiple-breath washout (N-MBW) is a lung function test that measures ventilation inhomogeneity, a biomarker of small airway disease. We assessed clinical properties of N-MBW in IPF.
