Example text

It must be stressed that the discussion here is not a complete one but rather covers what are considered to be essentials for someone trying to obtain the IPSG. Engineering issues regarding sensing and signal processing are major subjects in the field of biomedical engineering and involve many technical issues not covered in this Chapter. Instead, the focus has been on issues related to description of signals, obtaining the signals used in the IPSG, and those steps of signal processing that are commonly applied with this diagnostic procedure.

Such increases appear as noise spikes on the recording of this signal. This problem can be An atlas of infant polysomnography 16 reduced in a similar way to reducing the risk of rupture of the silicone rubber tube by avoiding the use of older sensors that have undergone multiple uses. Thus, it is important to replace sensors after several uses. An alternative to the liquid metal strain gauge is the piezoelectric strain sensor14. A piezoelectric material is one that produces a small electrical signal when it undergoes a strain, and this can be used as a breathing sensor in much the same way as the liquid metal strain gauge without its attendant limitations.

For those instances where infants are coming to the laboratory from home, and particularly where the parents will be staying overnight during the IPSG, caregiver preparation and education are crucial to obtaining an optimal study.
