Abstract

A computerized method for the analysis of the electrical activity of the respiratory muscles of premature infants is presented. The measurement of electrical activity in the muscles involved in respiration provides a means for studying muscular activity in relation to the ventilatory process. This electromyographic (EMG) examination gives information about the magnitude and timing of the muscular activity. For this analysis the EMG signals are rectified and filtered using the moving time average technique.
