[Pressure] Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
RE: Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
Not to hijack a thread by another member, but I have "hyperinflated lungs" by imaging diagnostics. I rarely if ever have any cardioballistic artifacts. I have a similar tidal volume and slightly higher minute vent. Those if us that are regularly over 600 mL tidal volume are in the upper percentile of respiratory exchange. I have never seen these artifacts in my data.

I do not quite understand this statement, can you please explain in simpler terms for me . Thanks.
I am now 59 and that means that I am old enough to forget, but i'm still young enough to learn. Your advice is gratefully accepted, your opinion is highly valued and your patience will probably be tested when assisting me.

RE: Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
I frequently have 580 to 620 mL tidal volume with a minute vent of 9.20-10.0 L/min. I 'm just saying that is on the high side of what you will normally see if you observe these statistics over a lot of members. I think you commented that you had been diagnosed with hyperinflated lungs. I have a record of a chest X-ray with the same comment. It doesn't seem to be much of an issue. My comment was simply that if you look across a few thousand chart, you won't often see lot of us that share this lung volume. I may have just taken that comment out of context, but I have seen the same diagnostic comment about myself.

Thanks for explaining that, I had no idea what it meant and no clue as to whether it was a a good or bad  (Or neither) comment.

RE: Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
Congrats to you sine!  Now definitely there were no cardioballistic effects at all.  The other day in our German forum we had the same thing:

[Image: file.php?id=14518&sid=0f7f926811f07db775...&mode=view]

Here's a zoom:
[Image: file.php?id=14528&sid=0f7f926811f07db775...&mode=view]


Actually the respiration rate is about 20, but the machine reports 40.  And here's a classification of flow limitations:

Now please decide yourself what's going on here: may we be inclined to consider that class 2 und 3 and others limitations are present? (I rarely had that pattern on my machine, too: should all these machines be faulty?!)

RE: Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
Snooks, it may help if we can get a better zoomed shot of the unusual pattern where high respiration rate is recorded. Note on the image posted by Multicast, the segment is only 1 minute and 30 seconds or so. A closer zoom will allow better interpretation of either respiration or machine issue.

Yep I would look at it under the microscope as it were, as it's possible some pattern or such may be picked up to help find a resolution.

Hopefully these two screen shots can help work it out. I hope i have zoomed in enough, i seem to be having issues learning how to zoom in properly.

To me it looks like #3.

I'm in and out but will check back in a while in case of any more screenshots being needed.

RE: Newbee - 1st Evening Failure
Doesn't look like 2 or 3 to me either. Instead I'm seeing several breaths in rapid succession, with the flow rates distinctly crossing the zero line, followed by a pause. I defer to the experts about what this might be.
