Applying the resonance equation to the blood pressure waveform variation in aorta bending and renal ligation of rats

2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2001

In the resonance theory, the radial dilatation is emphasized, and the blood pressure wave is transmitted in the form of "moving windkessel". Based on this conjecture, we developed a semi-empirical procedure to describe the pressure distribution in a complex simulated model composed of a main tube and attached organs. Now we try to apply this fitting method to hemodynamics in ...


Application of the adaptive impulse correlated filter for recovering fetal electrocardiogram

Computers in Cardiology 1997, 1997

A method is described for obtaining the fetal ECG from surface electrodes using a procedure that combines averaging and adaptive techniques. The algorithm proposed consists of an adaptive filter whose reference signal is an impulse synchronized with the maternal QRS and whose desired signal is a fetal abdominal derivation. The filter behaves as an exponential average whereby its weights define ...


Neural network paradigm comparisons for appendicitis diagnoses

[1991] Computer-Based Medical Systems@m_Proceedings of the Fourth Annual IEEE Symposium, 1991

The results of comparisons among diagnoses of appendicitis versus nonspecific abdominal pain using three neural-network paradigms are reported. The paradigms used were the back propagation, binary adaptive resonance theory, and fuzzy resonance paradigms. It appears, from the limited testing done, that the back-propagation network performs best. Also discussed is the need to standardize input data files to facilitate paradigm comparisons ...

  • Applying the resonance equation to the blood pressure waveform variation in aorta bending and renal ligation of rats

    In the resonance theory, the radial dilatation is emphasized, and the blood pressure wave is transmitted in the form of "moving windkessel". Based on this conjecture, we developed a semi-empirical procedure to describe the pressure distribution in a complex simulated model composed of a main tube and attached organs. Now we try to apply this fitting method to hemodynamics in vivo, and we tested our equations by two sets of experiments on the rats: ligating a renal artery and bending the aorta transversely. Abdominal aortic blood pressure of rat was measured through tubes inserted from the caudate artery and compared with curve-fitting deduced from semi empirical resonance equations. The good fitting result illustrates that in spite of various complex structures of the arterial system, we can still provide good description for the blood pressure distribution by dividing the arterial system into sub-units and describing with few elastic parameters. It reinforces the conjecture of the resonance theory.

  • Application of the adaptive impulse correlated filter for recovering fetal electrocardiogram

    A method is described for obtaining the fetal ECG from surface electrodes using a procedure that combines averaging and adaptive techniques. The algorithm proposed consists of an adaptive filter whose reference signal is an impulse synchronized with the maternal QRS and whose desired signal is a fetal abdominal derivation. The filter behaves as an exponential average whereby its weights define an averaged abdominal maternal pulse that can be subtracted from the original register, thus eliminating the maternal contribution and securing a clean fetal ECG.

  • Neural network paradigm comparisons for appendicitis diagnoses

    The results of comparisons among diagnoses of appendicitis versus nonspecific abdominal pain using three neural-network paradigms are reported. The paradigms used were the back propagation, binary adaptive resonance theory, and fuzzy resonance paradigms. It appears, from the limited testing done, that the back-propagation network performs best. Also discussed is the need to standardize input data files to facilitate paradigm comparisons and minimize software system development time. A structure for network input data files that could contribute to a process of standardization is proposed. The work is part of an effort to develop a medical practice support system to be used in isolated environments such as submarines.<<ETX>>

  • To adapt, to guide and to interact —three models of human-product relationship

    The goal of the human engineering design is clear, and the approach to catch the goal is various. The author will take three chair designs as cases: the chair designed by basic human scale standard, kneeling chair, and armchair ¿vertebra¿. The three cases exactly exhibit three models of human-product relationship: adapt, guide and interact. The human engineering design should not use only one model invariably and isolated, but choice, organize and colligate various means and forms widely and neatly in order to realize design goal. So we should understand and accord with human's attribute and particularity firstly, and then lead human's life developing to energetic and positive way. We also should harmonize the relationship of human and product, and mobilize their advantages and effects. The product and its user will affect each other, match each other, supply each other and revise each other, and then establish the best relationship of human-product.

  • Design of a Continuous Positive Bi-Pressure System BPAP as Respiratory Support - Part I

    In this document, the part I of the development of a continuous low-cost positive bi-pressure system as a respiratory support for patients with respiratory disorders while they sleep, such as sleep obstructive apnea- hypopnea, will be discussed. A description is given of the main requirements of this device, the features it must comply with and the components that comprise it.

  • Respiratory motion correction of PET using motion parameters from MR

    Respiratory motion during PET acquisition from the chest/abdomen leads to significant image degradation. Combined PET/MR scanners open up the opportunity to correct motion using MR data acquired simultaneously with PET. As simultaneous human chest/abdomen PET/MR images are currently unobtainable, in this preliminary study we determined motion parameters from respiratory- gated MR and then used these to correct pseudo-PET images generated from the MR. The gated MR images were segmented to typical organ FDG SUV values, smoothed to mimic PET resolution, forward projected into the GE advance geometry and reconstructed separately using OSEM. The MR images were registered using a combined affine and non-rigid B-splines algorithm, with mutual information used as the cost function in a multi-resolution approach. Motion corrected images from both post-reconstruction registration and 4D image reconstruction are shown to be superior to those without motion compensation for most organs.

  • An analysis of the normal mode helical antenna close to the human abdomen in the VHF-band

    An analysis of the performance of the normal mode helical antenna for portable radio terminals, close to the human abdomen has been performed. In the VHF- band it is shown that the impedance mismatch loss is the major contributory factor to the total power loss and it must be taken into account when calculating the radiation efficiency of the antennas.

  • Real-time rectilinear 3-D ultrasound with 4:1 receive mode multiplexing

    In previous work, we developed two generations of a real-time rectilinear volumetric scanner operating at 5 MHz for abdominal, breast or vascular imaging using a mills cross 2-D array and a rectilinear periodic 2-D array. To improve spatial resolution performance and sensitivity, we developed a new design using 4:1 receive mode multiplexing. With 4:1 multiplexing, the new 65,000 element 2-D array has 4/spl times/256=1024 receivers so that 256 receivers can be used on any image line. The two major benefits of using receive mode multiplexing include: (1) an increase in receive sensitivity due to a greater number of receive elements and (2) a decrease in grating lobe and clutter levels due to increased receive element density. Theoretical simulations and analysis show an increase of about 13 dB in sensitivity compared to our previous work. With these encouraging results, a new 65,000 element 5 MHz 2-D array having 1024 receivers and 169 transmitters was prototyped. In addition, the multiplexer and control circuitry were designed, built, and interfaced with both the transducer and volumetric scanner. Images of tissue-mimicking phantoms and in vivo targets were obtained. Using a spherical cyst phantom, experimental results showed a +12 dB improvement in signal-to-noise ratio and a +6 dB improvement in contrast compared to our previous work.
