Pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) is inversely re-lated to the pulse arrival time (PAT) of the EIT signal in the lungs. The goal of this study is to evaluate whether PAT-based EIT measures can accurately monitor directly-measured PAP in newborn lambs. Early results show good correlations and trending ability, although the technique is sensitive to belt placement and signal quality.
