      Article
      Open Access
      Differentiating normal from adventitious respiratory sounds (RS) is a major challenge in the diagnosis of pulmonary diseases. Particularly, continuous adventitious sounds (CAS) are of clinical interest because they reflect ...
    • Detecting unilateral phrenic paralysis by acoustic respiratory analysis 

      Fiz, José Antonio; Jané Campos, Raimon; Lozano, Manuel; Gomez, Rosa; Ruiz, Juan (2014-04-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      The consequences of phrenic nerve paralysis vary from a considerable reduction in respiratory function to an apparently normal state. Acoustic analysis of lung sound intensity (LSI) could be an indirect non-invasive ...
    • Estimation of instantaneous frequency from empirical mode decomposition on respiratory sounds analysis 

      Lozano, Manuel; Fiz Fernández, José Antonio; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Instantaneous frequency (IF) calculated by empirical mode decomposition (EMD) provides a novel approach to analyze respiratory sounds (RS). Traditionally, RS have been analyzed using classical time-frequency distributions, ...

      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The problem of allocating a set of facilities in order to maximise the sum of the demands of the covered clients is known as the maximal covering location problem. In this work we tackle this problem by means of iterated ...
    • Novel approach to continuous adventitious respiratory sound analysis for the assessment of bronchodilator response 

      Lozano, Manuel; Fiz Fernández, José Antonio; Martínez Rivera, Carlos; Torrents, Aurora; Ruiz Manzano, Juan; Jané Campos, Raimon (2017-02-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      Background A thorough analysis of continuous adventitious sounds (CAS) can provide distinct and complementary information about bronchodilator response (BDR), beyond that provided by spirometry. Nevertheless, previous ...
    • Performance evaluation of the Hilbert–Huang transform for respiratory sound analysis and its application to continuous adventitious sound characterization 

      Lozano, Manuel; Fiz Fernández, José Antonio; Jané Campos, Raimon (2016-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      The use of the Hilbert–Huang transform in the analysis of biomedical signals has increased during the past few years, but its use for respiratory sound (RS) analysis is still limited. The technique includes two steps: ...
