MONITORING LUNG DISEASE USING ELECTRONIC STETHOSCOPE ARRAYS Kyle Mulligan, Andy Adler, and Rafik Goubran
 

Summary: MONITORING LUNG DISEASE USING ELECTRONIC STETHOSCOPE ARRAYS

INTRODUCTION
Respiratory support is a lifesaving therapy, but it also
augments the risk of contracting complications
attributable to the endotracheal tube, positive pressure
ventilation, or sedation. It is essential to develop
strategies to optimize respiratory support in order to
minimize the development of these complications.
Management of such patients is difficult because the
underlying pathologies are dynamic and unstable.
Recent evidence has shown that lung protective
ventilation strategies lead to dramatic improvements in
patient health by reducing ventilator induced lung
injury (VILI)
1
. To protect against VILI, many novel
modes of ventilation have been developed; however
clinicians have difficulty choosing optimal ventilation
