The usefulness of popular occlusional heads to extended, time-frequency analysis of post-interrupter respiratory data was tested in this study. A portable mobile interrupter module, designed to acquire (also in telemedical system) raw signals of mouth pressure (Qao) and airflow (Pao), enabled flexible valve operation during normal breathing and flow induced by the airflow generator. The potential for algorithmic development of data processing procedures and hardware limitations of the shutter-type valve by Jaeger and Micro Medical is depicted here. The power spectrum density of Pao and input interrupter impedance (Zint), calculated by the Micro Medical interrupter, were sensitive indices of respiratory mechanics measurement, but problematic natural oscillations and leakage during valve closing reduced the clinical relevance of the assessments. These hardware specifications represent prerequisites for prospective research in a sensing technology domain on an optimal valve-transducer unit design.
