Published: Dec 17, 2008
GE and Deep Breeze said that they designed the VRIxv to display information during the respiratory process on ventilated patients. The VRIxv records lung sounds by utilizing acoustic sensors brought in contact with the patients’ back while lying in bed. The software converts signals into images of the lungs with regional distribution maps, numerical representation and breathing graphs. Each recording samples 20 seconds of lung sounds, typically covering several breath cycles.
