Spatial variability of ventricular activity intervals in normal subjects and old myocardial infarction patients

C. Alvarado Serrano; Juan Rarnos Castro; R. Pallas Arelly (ICEEE). 1st International Conference on Electrical and Electronics Engineering, 2004., 2004

Increased dispersion of QT interval in the 12-lead ECG have been proposed as risk factor of ventriculsr arrhythmias in post myocardial infarction (post-MI) patients, but its sensitivity and specifity is low for diagnosis and/or prognosis. We evaluate dispersion in other ventricular activity intervals, in order to determine whether they improve the separation between 15 normal subjects and 15 post-MI patients ...


Atrial Fibrillation detection using time-varying coherence function and Shannon Entropy

J. Lee; D. McManus; K. Chon 2011 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2011

We introduce a novel method for automatic detection of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) using time-varying coherence functions (TVCF) and Shannon Entropy (SE). The TVCF is estimated by the multiplication of two time-varying transfer functions (TVTFs). Two TVTFs are obtained using two adjacent data segments with one data segment as the input signal and the other data segment as the output to ...


Detection of ventricular fibrillation using the autocorrelation function analysis of the ECG

S. G. Guillen; M. T. Arredondo; G. Martin; J. M. Ferrero Corral Images of the Twenty-First Century. Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, 1989

A method is developed for the detection of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and life-threatening arrhythmias. The method is based on direct and simple peak analysis of the autocorrelation function (ACF). It can differentiate between VF (coarse and fine) and non-VH rhythms. ECG records during ventricular tachycardia (VT) and VF were obtained, and 4-s-long segments were digitized at 200 Hz and then ...


Characterization of repolarization alternans during ischemia: time-course and spatial analysis

J. P. Martinez; S. Olmos; G. Wagner; P. Laguna IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2006

T-wave alternans (TWA) has been linked to increased vulnerability to ventricular fibrillation in different settings including myocardial ischemia. In this study, we propose a methodology for the characterization of TWA induced by transient, regional ischemia. We studied the prevalence, magnitude and spatio-temporal relationship between TWA and ischemia in 95 patients undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Two electrocardiogram records of ...


Spectral analysts of ventricular fibrillation: validation of an experimental model

J. Guerrero; F. J. Chorro; M. Martinez; J. Calpe; E. Soria; J. Espi Proceedings of 18th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1996

The present study analyzes three aspects related to Ventricular Fibrillation (VF): 1) Stability of the VF model using an isolated heart and maintaining perfusion; 2) Comparison among the information related to the spectral analysis of the VF signal given by different types and positioning of the electrodes during its stability; 3) Alterations in VF before its interruption provoked by administering ...

    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
