Published in 1995: Breath Sounds Methodology is a practical introduction to the measurement of the acoustic properties of the respiratory system. The author describes objective and quantitative methods for extracting the information embedded in the sounds produced in the airways and by the lung during breathing.


"If you conduct respiratory or acoustical research, this book would be a very valuble addition to your library."

-Russ Waitman, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, Nov./Dec. 1995
