Breathing difficulties are common in neonatal patients, and non-contact respiratory monitoring is an area of research which may potentially benefit patients and medical professionals alike by reducing disturbance of the patients by the monitoring system. This paper discusses a range of approaches used in recent years including magnetic, radio, optoelectronic and structured light. We also outline our research into using an optical time-of-flight system based on a game controller (Microsoft Kinect™ v2) to measure respiratory parameters.
