Automatic detection of atrial fibrillation using R-R interval signal

Xiuhua Ruan; Changchun Liu; Chengyu Liu; Xinpei Wang; Peng Li 2011 4th International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMEI), 2011

This paper presents a method to automatically detect atrial fibrillation (AF) based on the scatter plot of R-R interval signal. R-R intervals of AF are absolutely irregular, which are different from those of normal ECG. Scatter plot of R-R interval signal is illustrated here and characteristic indexes are extracted from the plot, i.e. VAI, VLI, SD1, and SD2. Algorithm test ...

Epicardial fibrosis explains increased transmural conduction in a computer model of atrial fibrillation

Ali Gharaviri; Mark Potse; Sander Verheule; Rolf Krause; Angelo Auricchio; Ulrich Schotten 2016 Computing in Cardiology Conference (CinC), 2016

Recent work has shown that the transition from persistent to permanent AF in goats coincides with an increase in fibrosis in the outer millimeter of the atrial wall. Macroscopically this leads to reduced electrical conductivity orthogonal to the dominant fiber orientation. We constructed a detailed geometry of the human atria including epicardial layer and all major endocardial bundle structures. The ...

M. Lemay; V. Jacquemet; C. Duchêne; A. van Oosterom; R. Abächerli; JM Vesin 2009 36th Annual Computers in Cardiology Conference (CinC), 2009

This study aims at assessing the relation between the activity level of an ectopic focus and the complexity of the resulting atrial fibrillation (AF) dynamics. Eight different episodes of focal AF were simulated in a 3D model of human atria. To create various AF dynamics, the episodes differed by the location of their focal source. The activity level of a ...


Assessing the Relative Integrity of Formed Cardiac Linear Lesions by Recording Both Focal Monophasic Action Potentials and Contact Forces: A Technical Brief

Mark A. Benscoter; Paul A. Iaizzo IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine, 2015

The use of therapeutic ablation in patients with atrial fibrillation has become a mainstay in the treatment of this disease, yet often these individuals require multiple procedures. In other words, successful first time treatments are impacted by challenges, including the generation of linear lesions in certain anatomies like the mitral isthmus of the left atrium. Hence, there is a need ...

    The book presents recent advances in signal processing techniques for modeling, analysis, and understanding of the heart's electrical activity during atrial fibrillation. This arrhythmia is the most commonly encountered in clinical practice and its complex and metamorphic nature represents a challenging problem for clinicians, engineers, and scientists. Research on atrial fibrillation has stimulated the development of a wide range of signal processing tools to better understand the mechanisms ruling its initiation, maintenance, and termination. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers and practicing engineers, with an overview of techniques, including time domain techniques for atrial wave extraction, time- frequency analysis for exploring wave dynamics, and nonlinear techniques to characterize the ventricular response and the organization of atrial activity. The book includes an introductory chapter about atrial fibrillation and its mechanisms, t eatment, and management. The successive chapters are dedicated to the analysis of atrial signals recorded on the body surface and to the quantification of ventricular response. The rest of the book explores techniques to characterize endo- and epicardial recordings and to model atrial conduction. Under the appearance of being a monothematic book on atrial fibrillation, the reader will not only recognize common problems of biomedical signal processing but also discover that analysis of atrial fibrillation is a unique challenge for developing and testing novel signal processing tools. Table of Contents: Analysis of Ventricular Response During Atrial Fibrillation / Organization Measures of Atrial Activity During Fibrillation / Modeling Atrial Fibrillation: From Myocardial Cells to ECG / Algorithms for Atrial Tachyarrythmia Detection for Long-Term Monitoring with Implantable Devices
