New Biomedicine and Biomedical Engineering Findings from O.G. Martinsen and Co-Researchers Described (Bioimpedance-Based Respiration Monitoring With a Defibrillator)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Fresh data on Biotechnology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Stavanger, Norway, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Defibrillators often use an ac measurement to ensure safe electrode placement."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Some defibrillators also utilize impedance measurements for ventilation monitoring. This paper investigates how such measurements can be optimized for high respiration sensitivity and finds that it is beneficial to add two extra electrodes in addition to the two defibrillator electrodes."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This four electrode setup increases sensitivity and also allows respiration measurements at lower frequencies than the two electrode setup."
