Abstract : The invention discusses how respiration is monitored by measuring a subject's impedance by impressing an oscillator-controlled constant current source upon the subject. The output is fed to a differential amplifier, bandpass filtered, and full wave rectified. The differential amplifier can be switched to be fed by separate electrodes on the subject and not connected to the constant current source.
