Abstract

Non-invasive monitoring of breathing is a holy grail in paediatric respiratory, neonatal and sleep medicine. Respiratory rate is a key marker for the surveillance of sick infants and children (1-3), while repeated infant apnoeic episodes are associated with an increased risk of apparent life-threatening events (4). In clinical pulse oximetry, the photoplethysmographic (pleth) signal is assessed mainly to infer the validity of measured arterial oxygen saturation. This article is protected by copyright.
