Fitting nonlinear time-domain models of respiratory mechanics to pressure-flow data from an intubated patient

J. H. T. Bates; P. Goldberg Proceedings of the First Joint BMES/EMBS Conference. 1999 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 21st Annual Conference and the 1999 Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (Cat. N, 1999

The mechanical status of the respiratory system in intubated mechanically ventilated patients is conveniently assessed from the dynamic relationships between the pressure and flow of gas measured at the entrance to the endotracheal tube. A model of respiratory mechanics is fit to the data, and the parameters of the model are then taken to be measures of important physiological quantities. ...


In-to-out body path loss for wireless radio frequency capsule endoscopy in a human body

G. Vermeeren; E. Tanghe; A. Thielens; L. Martens; W. Joseph 2016 38th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC), 2016

Physical-layer characterization is important for design of in-to-out body communication for wireless body area networks (WBANs). This paper numerically investigates the path loss of an in-to-out body radio frequency (RF) wireless link between an endoscopy capsule and a receiver outside the body using a 3D electromagnetic solver. A spiral antenna in the endoscopy capsule is tuned to operate in the ...


Mechanism and control of tongue robot

T. Kawamura; T. Tandai; H. Takanobu 2005 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2005

This paper describes the development of a multi-degrees of freedom (DOF) flexible robot based on the tongue. The authors focused on the tongue because of its "flexibility" and "soft motion." The robot performs motions characteristic of the tongue: i.e., up-down and right-left motion of tip, and up-down, right-left, twisting, and circular motion of the whole. The robot's forms were defined ...


Tryptophan Fluorescence of Cells and Tissue in Esophageal Carcinoma

Bhaskar Banerjee; Logan R. Graves; Urs Utzinger IEEE Sensors Journal, 2012

Cancer is a cellular process. The emission spectrum of tryptophan, which produces the strongest fluorescence in cells, was investigated in cells and tissues of a normal and malignant esophagus. Estimated fluorescence intensity per cell was about three times greater in cancerous cells than in normal cells. The fluorescence was also greater in cancerous tissue but the difference was attenuated, probably ...


Investigation of digestive system disorders using Electrogastrogram

G. Gopu; R. Neelaveni; K. Porkumaran 2008 International Conference on Computer and Communication Engineering, 2008

Most of the people around the world face the problems related to health especially due to the food intake and disorders in the digestive system. Nowadays endoscope procedure is followed to investigate the problems in the digestive system disorders, which is a tedious, expensive and invasive method. A non-invasive, cheap and painless method called electrogastrogram (EGG) has been devised for ...
