Compliance and Resistance Analysis

The AcqKnowledge® Compliance and Resistance analysis is part of a suite of three automated respiration routines. The other two are Pulmonary Air Flow Analysis and Full Body Plethysmograph Penh. Each routine provides breath-by-breath analysis, event marking and exporting of the values to excel.

Compliance and Resistance

This analysis requires an air flow signal and a pressure signal. The analysis will extract compliance and resistance values along with many common pulmonary values. Pulmonary compliance is calculated using the isovolumetric method. A user specified percentage of the tidal volume is located on both sides of the tidal volume signal. Pulmonary resistance is defined as the difference in pressure divided by flow at these two points.

This is one of many ADVANCED FEATURES for the selected Application. Scroll down for hardware options.

Dynamic compliance is measured on a breath-by-breath basis by diving tidal volume by change in pressure between the exhale start and inhale start locations of the breath.
