RSA settings children

Postby R Buisman » 07 Jun 2016, 11:47

Hi,

I'm visually inspecting the RSA in my sample, which consists of children (8-12 years old) and adults (18-80 years old). In the VU AMS manual it is described that some settings for respiration when measuring children might need to be changed, because children have a higher heart rate. I compared the respiration rates between children and adults in my sample and the differences aren't that large. With the default settings the program also doesn't mark more than 10% of the recording for children as artefact. What do you recommend? Can I maintain the default settings or are there some clear cut off settings for children?

Thank you in advance for your answer!

Best,
Renate

Hi Renate,

You can stick with the default settings if VU-DAMS does not mark more than 1/10 of the recording as artefact.
