Analysing the dynamics of pulseless electrical activity during cardiopulmonary resuscitation

I. Dragsund; K. Gundersen; M. Risdal; J. Kramer-Johansen; B. Abella; D. Edelson; F. Sterz; T. Eftestol 2006 Computers in Cardiology, 2006

Possible clinical states of a cardiac arrest patient are ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia (VF/VT), asystole (ASY) or pulseless electrical activity (PEA), and the treatment goals are return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and neurologic ally intact survival. Waveform analysis has been used in VF to predict treatment outcomes and we hypothesised that similar analysis in PEA could predict transformation to ROSC. We analysed ...

P. Kokol; P. Povalej; Z. Pehnec Computers in Cardiology, 2003, 2003

A successful application of a new intelligent system design approach called Multimethod in knowledge extraction and discovery in heart attack areas is presented in this paper. The results show that the Multimethod approach is a powerful and promising technique enabling the conformation of existing medical knowledge and more interestingly, also enabling the induction of new facts and hypothesis, which can ...

A. M. Stavroulakis; M. T. Ortiz; L. Taras; J. F. Kenny; V. Ortiz Proceedings of the IEEE 22nd Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 1996

The availability of thrombolytic therapy and new neurological salvage agents with anti-hypoxic properties has sensitized the hospital community to the importance of decreased ambulance response times in cases of CVA (stroke). A preliminary computerized retrospective comparison of ambulance response times in CVA and Cardiac calls over a 6 month period was conducted at a major metropolitan hospital to determine whether ...

A method of nonlinear dynamics analysis of heart rate variability was applied in 65 patients in chronic phase after myocardial infarction. On the basis of clinical data, including age, mean R-R interval, standard deviation of R-R intervals, ejection fraction, the presence of ventricular premature depolarizations (VPDs) >10/hour, complex VPDs or non-sustained ventricular tachycardia, as well as ventricular late potentials, previous ...

T. Penzel; G. B. Moody; R. G. Mark; A. L. Goldberger; J. H. Peter Computers in Cardiology 2000. Vol.27 (Cat. 00CH37163), 2000

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder with a high prevalence in the adult male population. Sleep apnea is regarded as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular sequelae such as ischemic heart attacks and stroke. The diagnosis of sleep apnea requires polysomnographic studies in sleep laboratories with expensive equipment and attending personnel. Sleep apnea can be treated effectively using nasal ventilation ...

  • Introduction

    The development of Doppler radar for remote sensing of vital signs, with proof of concept demonstrated for various applications, could offer a platform for unobtrusive, noncontact, yet continuous physiological monitoring systems. Early identification of patient deterioration is important, as it can prevent subsequent cardiopulmonary arrest and reduce mortality. Assessment of cardiopulmonary functions is most often performed with contact sensors when direct access to the subject is available. Monitoring the cardiac state of burn victims can be challenging because it is sometimes difficult to find enough skin on which to apply an electrocardiogram (ECG) electrode. Cardiopulmonary activity is the main parameter used in the study of sleep disorders. Widespread use of microwave technology and digital processors in common household communications devices has driven down costs, making it possible to develop practical radar monitors that cost significantly less than conventional cardiopulmonary assessment instruments.
