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 ...


Defining requirements for an atrial fibrillation screening system that implements tele-holtering on a cloudified infrastructure

Cesar Veiga; Emilio Paredes-Galán; Daniel Rivera; Francisco Calvo; Pablo Pazos; Carlos Peña; Enrique García; Andrés Iñiguez Romo 2015 10th Iberian Conference on Information Systems and Technologies (CISTI), 2015

This work intends to define requirements to design, deploy, evaluate and validate the feasibility, efficiency and safety of an enriched telecardiology application for providing remotely ECG and Holter diagnostic/monitor services as atrial fibrillation screening. The platform must include supporting tools for e-learning that allow to operate the solution by general practitioners and patients for second opinion, best follow-up through home ...


Use of a microprocessor-based pacemaker to control an implantable drug delivery system

D. Bloem; R. Arzbaecher Proceedings of Computers in Cardiology Conference, 1993

Present strategies for treating paroxysmal atrial fibrillation are centered on the use of prophylactic oral administration of antiarrhythmic agents to prevent onset. This laboratory had proposed a system which senses the onset of atrial fibrillation and then delivers drug from an implanted pump to terminate infusion. In this system, arrhythmia detection was based on simple beat counting, while infusion was ...


Poincaré surface profile. Novel non-invasive method to detect preferential ventricular response during atrial fibrillation

A. M. Climent; M. S. Guillem; D. Husser; F. J. Castells; J. Millet; A. Bollmann 2007 Computers in Cardiology, 2007

The strategy of rate control during atrial fibrillation (AF) essentially deals with efforts to utilize and adjust the filtering properties of the atrioventricular (AV) node, allowing AF to continue and ensure that ventricular rate is controlled. In this work, a new tool based on the 3D Poincare plots is developed for the characterization of the ventricular response (VR) and the ...


Initiation and termination of spiral waves in a two-dimensional bidomain model of cardiac tissue

N. V. Thakor; M. G. Fishler Computers in Cardiology 1996, 1996

Spiral waves in cardiac tissue serve as a simplified model of ventricular fibrillation (VF). Initiation and termination of the spiral wave is studied in a computer model. The computer model comprises a two dimensional, bidomain, discontinuous and anisotropic network of cardiac cells. In an analogous experimental preparation, electrical activity is imaged using a voltage sensitive fluorescent dye. The model and ...

  • No title

    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.
