Paper Abstract

A method for respiratory monitoring, which uses a fiber- optic probe, has been developed and evaluated. The fiber- optic probe makes it possible to monitor from different sites on the patients, and the method is convenient to use. Therefore the method is suitable for the observation of both adults and children, in hospital as well as in other environments.
