Linshom vs Competing Technologies


Linshom Is able to monitor and display respiratory rate and tidal volume

data in real time and does not suffer from high cost or motion artifact.

Capnography does not provide tidal volume data, is a delayed

measurement compared to Linshom, suffers from motion artifact and is

expensive, complicated, and cumbersome.

Pulse Oximetry is not a respiratory monitor, but rather a saturation

monitor. It is hampered by motion artifact, ambient light artifact and can

be misleading when supplemental oxygen is provided to the patient.

Plethysmography based technology could be expensive, is cumbersome, suffers

from motion artifact and could provide misleading information when

utilized in a patient that is obstructed but exhibits chest movement.

Acoustic Monitoring does not provide tidal volume and could

not be utilized in patients with impediments to placement on the neck

(beard, neck collar, tracheostomy, etc.). Price is not known.

Nursing rounds are intermittent, only capture a data-point in time, and

nursing is expensive.
