A Gentler Technique For Artificial Respiration
“The Thorax Monitoring system uses two antennae attached to or next to the patient’s chest with one antenna transmitting an electromagnetic wave and the other receiving it. The principle is that muscle, fat and tissue all have different electrical properties from air in the lungs. Despite sounding rather complex, the general idea is quite simple: When a patient inhales, the lungs expand as they are filling with air. The electromagnetic wave travels faster through air than tissue. When the patient exhales, it is the opposite way round: The lungs contract, the electromagnetic wave must travel through more tissue, and thus its progress is slowed.”
