The Invention
UW-Madison researchers have developed a method and system for monitoring or quantifying airflow changes in a subject’s airway using B-mode ultrasound. Their approach is compatible with existing ultrasound probes or could be developed as a specialized/standalone probe/system. A subject’s airway could be monitored for changes in airflow before, during, or following a procedure, or may be used as a general patient monitoring tool. Exemplary applications include monitoring for changes in breathing status during and after sedation (anesthesia).
