Apparatus for the diagnosis or treatment of respiratory sleep disorders and operating process



Apparatus for the diagnosis or treatment of respiratory sleep disorders and operating process



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1264(1), Nov 5



The apparatus includes a motorized turbine making it possible to deliver a stream of respiratory gas under variable or constant pressure into a patient circuit linked to a user. In the process an image of the respiratory flow rate of the patient is determined on the basis of the variations in the electric current consumed by the turbine. An image of the respiratory volume of the patient is determined by integrating the image of the respiratory flow rate of the patient. The moving average of the image of the respiratory volume of the patient is determined over n respiratory cycles and a respiratory flow rate restriction is determined, below that of an apnea or a hypopnea, representative of an event of ORE type.
