Amplification is a method of processing a signal to increase the amplitude by a factor greater than one and this factor is known as the gain of the amplifier. Amplifiers can increase signals to many thousand times their original amplitude to allow them to be observed and/or recorded. If a biomedical signal in the frequency domain is considered, an amplifier should have the same gain for all frequency components of that signal. If this is not the case, the amplified signal will be distorted and will have a waveform different from that of the original signal.

Transthoracic impedance One of the most common methods of monitoring infant breathing is the measurement of transthoracic electrical impedance12. As with biopotential electrodes, there is an electrical impedance associated with passing an AC current through the body. The higher this impedance is, the more difficult it is to pass the current through the body. The electrical impedance of the thorax varies by a small amount over time. The sources of this variation are changes due to the breathing and cardiac cycles.
