Monitoring and Apnea Alarm for Infant Primates: Apparatus
A recent survey (Health Devices, 1974) listed the criteria for the acceptance of an apnea monitor for use with human patients. The monitor must detect the cessation of breathing reliably and accurately; it must produce an audible and visible alarm; it must be safe; and it should be sufficiently small to be unobtrusive in a hospital setting. Franks and colleagues (1976) have further suggested that a respiration monitor should be noninvasive, requiring neither surgical intervention nor direct contact with the patient. Obviously, any respiratory monitor must be absolutely safe, producing neither long-term nor short-term damage to the subject.
