Fundamentals of Respiratory System and Sounds Analysis by Zahra Moussavi

By Zahra Moussavi

Breath sounds have lengthy been vital signs of respiration overall healthiness and sickness. Acoustical tracking of respiration sounds has been utilized by researchers for varied diagnostic reasons. a number of many years in the past, physicians trusted their listening to to discover any symptomatic indicators in respiration sounds in their sufferers. notwithstanding, by way of desktop know-how and electronic sign processing strategies lately, breath sound research has drawn a lot cognizance as a result of its diagnostic services. automatic respiration sound research can now quantify adjustments in lung sounds; make everlasting documents of the measurements made and bring graphical representations that support with the prognosis and therapy of sufferers struggling with lung ailments. electronic sign processing innovations were regularly occurring to derive features gains of the lung sounds for either diagnostic and evaluate of remedy reasons. even if the analytical ideas of sign processing are mostly self sufficient of the applying, interpretation in their effects on organic facts, i.e. breathing sounds, calls for gigantic knowing of the concerned physiological method. This lecture sequence starts off with an outline of the anatomy and body structure concerning human respiration approach, and proceeds to complex learn in breathing sound research and modeling, and their program as diagnostic aids. even though the various used sign processing suggestions were defined in short, the purpose of this booklet isn't really to explain the analytical tools of sign processing however the software of them and the way the consequences may be interpreted. The booklet is written for engineers with college point wisdom of arithmetic and electronic sign processing.

While the amount of target flow affects the accuracy of the heart sound detection, this issue has not been addressed in some studies; making the comparison difficult. 2 show the reported errors of the above-mentioned studies. Other than the accuracy in heart sound localization, one should be careful about the false positive and negative errors of the method as well. As heart sounds localization is a preprocessing step for most of the heart sounds reduction methods, the techniques with smaller false negative error are preferred.

In general, as it can also be observed in the figures, fine crackles are higher frequency sounds compared to coarse crackles. Coarse crackles have less intensity and are longer in duration. For this reason, they are also called “explosive” and “bubbling” sounds to describe fine and coarse crackles, respectively. Crackles are present in heart congestion failure, pneumonia, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, or chronic diffuse parenchymal lung disease. The location and number of heard crackles are some indicators of the type of disease.

However, the study does not elaborate on the differences at different flow rates and whether the method is successful in high flow rates. 3 HEART SOUND LOCALIZATION The first step in all heart sounds reduction techniques except the wavelet denoising and ICA analysis is to localize the heart sound included segments in a lung sound record. Several methods have been proposed for heart sound localization. In [23, 30, 36, 38, 43] an adaptive thresholding on lung sound signal either in the time or time–frequency domains within a moving window was used to detect heart sounds included segments.
