    Muñoz Ortega, Isabel Cristina; Hernández Valdivieso, Alher Mauricio; Alonso López, Joan Francesc; Mañanas Villanueva, Miguel Ángel; Atehortua López, Luis Horacio (2017-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility of surface electromyographic signal derived indexes for the prediction of weaning outcomes among mechanically ventilated subjects after cardiac surgery. ...
  • Classification of patients undergoing weaning from mechanical ventilation using the coherence between heart rate variability and respiratory flow signal” 

    Arcentales Viteri, Andrés Ricardo; Caminal Magrans, Pere; Diaz, Ivan; Benito Vales, Salvador; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2015-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Weaning from mechanical ventilation is still one of the most challenging problems in intensive care. Unnecessary delays in discontinuation and weaning trials that are undertaken too early are both undesirable. This study ...
  • Detection of the Weaning Instant by Means of Recurrence Quantification Analysis 

    Garriga Rodríguez, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-05-24)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Weaning from mechanical ventilation is still one of the most challenging problems in intensive care. Unnecessary delays in discontinuation and weaning trials that are undertaken too early are both undesirable. This study ...
  • Diseño de un simulador activo de un pulmón para un respirador mecánico 

    Cruciani Toti, Rodolfo Oscar; Grau Clavero, Judit (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-09)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Hospital Sant Joan de Déu
    Este proyecto impulsado por el Hospital Sant Joan de Déu de Barcelona, consiste en diseñar y elaborar un simulador capaz de representar el movimiento y el comportamiento un pulmón mecánico en estado activo y pasivo de un ...
  • Diseño de un simulador pasivo de pulmón para un respirador mecánico 

    Cárdenas Rezabala, Brian Guillermo; Isla Valdanzo, Raúl (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Una de las principales limitaciones en la docencia de la ventilación mecánica es la falta de automatización de las distintas funciones en los simuladores de pulmón pasivos, obligando a realizar los cambios necesarios para ...
  • Dynamic control of breathing blend for professional diving 

    Terrades Andreu, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07-10)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    The human body accumulates inert gasses when exposed to higher pressures than environmental pressure, which in a decrement of the pressure, or decompression, will expand and form bubbles inside several body tissues. The ...
  • Optimization techniques in respiratory control system models 

    Serna Higuita, Leidy Yanet; Mañanas Villanueva, Miguel Ángel; Marín Sánchez, Jesús; Hernández Valdivieso, Alher Mauricio; Benito, S. (2016-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the most complex physiological systems whose modeling is still an open study is the respiratory control system where different models have been proposed based on the criterion of minimizing the work of breathing ...
  • Rediseño de un simulador pasivo de pulmón para respirador mecánico 

    Bermúdez Ramírez, Edwin Mauricio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-02-09)
    Bachelor thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Este proyecto se trata de la creación de un dispositivo que controle la capacidad de hincharse que tiene un pulmón (compliancia), para ello se ha utilizado un Siemens Maquet Test Lung 190 el cual simula las condiciones de ...
  • Respiration-Posture Feedback System for Breathing Control 

    Colom Mones, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Nagaoka University of Technology, 2013)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Restricted access - author's decision
    We developed a respiration-posture feedback system to control breathing involuntarily. In this system, a rubber air chamber placed under a subject’s back inflates or deflates to adjust a subject’s chest position slightly. ...
  • Symbolic dynamic analysis of relations between cardiac and breathing cycles in patients on weaning trials 

    Caminal Magrans, Pere; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz; Vallverdú Ferrer, Montserrat; Benito Vales, Salvador; Schroeder, Rico; Voss, Andreas (2010)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Traditional time-domain techniques of data analysis are often not sufficient to characterize the complex dynamics of the cardiorespiratory interdependencies during the weaning trials. In this paper, the interactions between ...
