The article discusses the characteristics of Biot's breathing and stresses the researcher responsible for this study. It states that Biot's breathing is a breathing pattern in patients with acute neurological disease. It likewise states that patients with this type of irregular breathing will likely be intubated. On the other side, Camille Biot was the researcher responsible for this study. Her contributions for the development of this study and her social background are offered.
