Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR QUANTIFYING LUNG COMPLIANCE IN A SELF-VENTILATING SUBJECT
Abstract
(EN)
The lung compliance of a subject that is at least partially self-ventilating is determined. The quantification of lung compliance may be an estimation  a measurement  and/or an approximate measurement. The quantification of lung compliance may be enhanced over conventional techniques and/or systems for quantifying lung compliance of self-ventilating subjects in the lung compliance may be quantified relatively accurately without an effort belt or other external sensing device that directly measures diaphragmatic muscle pressure  and without requiring the subject to manually control diaphragmatic muscle pressure. Quantification of lung compliance may be a useful tool in evaluating the health of the subject  including detection of fluid retention associated with developing acute congestive heart failure.Fig. 1
