A 64-channel EIT system for the investigation of optimal measurement approaches for lung protective ventilation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract

Present lung EIT systems typically employ
measurements made from electrodes describing a single
transverse section through the chest. The sensitivity of
measured transfer impedances to regional conductivity
variation decreases with distance from this electrode
plane. The full benefits of 3D reconstruction can only be
realised when a 3D approach is also applied in the
measurement of transfer impedances. A 64-channel EIT
system is described that combines the flexibility and
precision needed for the rapid experimental investigation
of candidate 3D measurement strategies. Results from
both phantom and human tests are presented.
