Title (EN) OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA MONITORING
(FR) DETECTION D'APNEE DU SOMMEIL OBSTRUCTIVE
Abstract:
(EN) A volume change sensor (11, 12) having an elongated tubular enclosure (15) with a thin deformable wall having a conduit (13) for connection to a pressure monitor (14), there being an elongated insert material (24) within the tubular enclosure that is wider than it is thick at some locations formed from resiliently deformable open cell foam. An elastic belt (16) against which the tubular enclosure is positioned is used to wrap it about a respirating subject (10) undergoing corresponding changes to measure same.
(FR) Détecteur de changements de volume (11, 12) ayant une protection tubulaire allongée (15) formée par une paroi mince déformable et comportant un tube (13) pour la connection avec un moniteur de pression (14). A l'intérieur de la protection tubulaire se trouve un matériau d'insertion allongé (24) qui est plus large qu'épais à certains endroits et qui est formé avec une mousse à cellules ouvertes déformable mais résiliente. La protection tubulaire est placée sur une ceinture élastique (16) qui est utilisée pour fixer le dispositif autour du corps d'un sujet (10) dont la respiration est surveillée; le dispositif subit les changements de volume et permet de les mesurer.
