A band pass filter allows the energy concentrated between two given frequencies (X and Y) to pass while it attenuates the signal's energy at other frequencies. It is equivalent to applying a high-pass filter at X and a low pass filter at Y.
A band stop filter attenuates the energy in the frequencies between two given frequencies (X and Y). It is equivalent to applying a low pass
filter at X and a high pass filter at Y.
Note that filters do not remove all of the energy outside of their pass band (the pass band is the frequencies between X and Y for a band pass filter, and below X and above Y for a band stop filter). Generally, the further away from the cut off frequencies (X and Y), the greater the attenuation of the energy. How fast the attenuation increases as a function of frequency is established by parameters (primarily “Q”) of the filter. Real filters will also attenuate within the pass band, and there are some tradeoffs in the selection of parameters.
The Ventilator Validation Kit supports new prototype development, existing design validation for production testing, mobile field testing and verification, and other uses where accurate pressure and flow measurements are critical. The Ventilator Validation Kit provides ventilator manufacturers and prototype developers with a complete solution for validating new medical/hospital-grade ventilator products intended for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes […]
Comparing Diaphragm Tissue Between Healthy and Ill Patients The human diaphragm is one of the primary muscles used in respiration, contracting and expanding to control breathing. To measure how much diaphragms move for critically ill patients (in an Intensive Care Unit) compared to diaphragms in a healthy subject, patients at “Papageorgiou” General Hospital in Thessaloniki, […]
