Abstract: In the interest of the neonatal comfort, the need for noncontact respiration monitoring increases. Moreover, home respiration monitoring would be beneficial. Therefore, the goal is to extract the respiration rate from video data included in a polysomnography. The presented method first uses Eulerian video magnification to amplify the respiration movements. A respiration signal is obtained through the optical flow algorithm. Independent component analysis and principal component analysis are applied to improve the signal quality, with minor enhancement of the signal quality. The respiratory rate is extracted as the dominant frequency in the spectrograms obtained using the short-time Fourier transform. Respiratory rate detection is successful (94.12%) for most patients during quiet sleep stages. Real-time monitoring could possibly be achieved by lowering the spatial and temporal resolutions of the input video data. The outline for successful video-aided detection of the respiration patt ern is shown, thereby paving the way for improvement of the overall assessment in the NICU and application in a home-friendly environment.
