Lung Function Testing in the 21st Century: Methodologies and Tools Bridging Engineering to Clinical Practice covers the complete aspects of lung function testing, ranging from standardized to newly introduced (IOS, FOT) methods. It provides an updated overview of advances in respiratory engineering, along with advice on which lung function tests are appropriate for which purpose. The author discusses non-standardized lung function testing, methods, clinical tests, diagnosis and future perspectives. Lung function measurement devices and protocols are also covered. This book covers multidisciplinary domains, bringing new technology ideas from mathematics, physics, biology and engineering into the field of respiratory engineering.
Users will find a single resource that brings together all of the disparate information on lung function testing technology currently contained in many journal articles.
Bridges the gap between engineers and clinicians with regard to pulmonary function techniques, from research, to design and clinical practice
Provides a comprehensive overview of all tools available for lung function testing, detailing their pros and cons
Includes information on incorporating new devices into existing procedures, along with methods for lung function testing
Biomedical Engineers working in Respiratory Engineering, and academics in the field of Respiratory Medicine
Standardized lung function testing: spirometry and body plethysmography Non-standardized lung function testing: impulse oscillometry Forced oscillation technique Methods for extracting lung function information from time-based signals Respiratory impedance Pressure-volume, flow-volume curves Stress-strain curves Models for evaluating respiratory properties Integer order impedance models Fractional order impedance models Heterogeneity and nonlinearity in the lung tissue Diffusion in small airways Clinical relevance Evaluating diffusion Effects of geometry and porosity on diffusion Added value of other clinical tests: - CT scans - Ultrasound - Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) Diagnosis of asthma and COPD: - Complementary lung function tests - Which lung function tests for which purpose - Patient Monitoring and Treatment Management Perspectives: what we still do not know but would like to find out

Prof. Dr. Clara Mihaela Ionescu is the holder of the Flanders Research Foundation FWO post-doctoral scholarship at Ghent University. She is author of more than 150 scientific papers of which more than 100 cited in Web of Science, with an h-index of 13.
Currently she is involved in 5 international projects with both industrial and biomedical applications, for identification and control. She was a member of the European Respiratory Society 2006-2008 and she was the first to coin the link between fractional order impedance models for respiratory properties to actual physiology and morphology of the lungs. She is member of several technical committees of IFAC and IEEE, including domains of biomedical engineering applications.
