High-Tech Vest for Monitoring Lung Function Could Speed Discharge of ICU Patients

A team of researchers has developed a technology whereby noises in the lungs are recorded using a textile vest with integrated acoustic sensors. The signals are then converted and displayed visually using software. In this way, patients can be discharged early from the ICU but can still be monitored continuously. More...
