Esophageal pressure (Pes) is usually measured in patients receiving mechanical ventilation and is used for the assessment of lung mechanics. However, its interpretation is complicated by the presence of cardiogenic oscillations (CGO). In this article we present a novel method for the reduction of CGO based on the identification of pressure templates. Similar approaches are known for the removal of electrocardiographic (ECG) artifacts from the electromyogram (EMG). The proposed method is tested on clinical recordings of patients under assisted spontaneous ventilation. Besides the improvement of the respiratory signals, the identified CGO templates can be used diagnostically when viewed in relation to corresponding ECG data. This approach is illustrated on a few sample datasets.
