1. A computer-implemented median method for recognizing occurrences of breaths in respiratory signals comprising:

  • receiving digitized respiratory signals having tidal volume information;

    filtering the received respiratory signals to limit artifacts of a duration less than a selected duration; and

    recognizing breaths in the filtered respiratory signals, wherein a breath is recognized when amplitude deviations in filtered tidal volume signals exceed a selected threshold fraction of an average of a plurality of previously recognized breaths.
