Ventilatory and peripheral O2 saturation oscillations during spontaneous and voluntary periodic breathing: a spectral analysis approach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

To test the hypothesis that the periodic breathing (PB) pattern in chronic heart failure (CHF) patients (pts) originates from the instability of the feedback loop controlling ventilation, the relationship between the instantaneous tidal volume (ITV) and O2 saturation at the ear (SpO2) was studied in 24 CHF pts during sustained episodes of PB and 13 healthy subjects during voluntary PB. Several basic modeling assumptions about the respiratory control system were made. Further, a set of expected results were formulated.
