Paper Title:
Generation of Respiratory Flow Having Fractal Signal Feature
  Abstract

In this paper how to generate respiratory flow that has fractal signal feature is introduced. Physiological signal have fractal feature have been verified by many researchers, such as heart beat rate, interbreath interval. Mechanical ventilators are used to provide life support for patients with respiratory failure. But these machines can damage the lung, causing them to collapse. On the other hand, fractal feature can be used as an indication of health situation; as a result in patient simulation the physiological signal should also have fractal features. The fractal feature is generated by fractional Brownian motion simulation. The fractal dimension is decided by Hurst exponent in routine. The algorithm is realized by R language and result is input into LabVIEW which have friendly interface and easy for simulation control usage. The method can be used in design of mechanical ventilator and medical patient simulator.
