Equivalent circuit model for finding the optimum frequency range for the detection of heart failure using microwave systems

S. Ahdi Rezaeieh; Y. -Q. Tan; A. Abbosh; M. A. Antoniades 2013 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium (APSURSI), 2013

A circuit model is used to estimate the useful frequency bands that can be used in a microwave system designed for heart failure detection. That detection is realized by monitoring the accumulation of fluids in lungs (pulmonary edema) that is associated with heart failure. The circuit model is derived from the electrical properties of human tissues in the torso area. ...


Studying liver cancer metastasis by in vivo imaging and flow cytometer

Chen Wang; Zhengqin Gu; Jin Guo; Yan Li; Guangda Liu; Xunbin Wei 2009 Asia Communications and Photonics conference and Exhibition (ACP), 2009

Primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, or HCC) is associated with liver cirrhosis 60-80% of the time. Liver cancer is one of the most common malignancies in the world, with approximately 1,000,000 cases reported every year. About 80% of people with primary liver cancer are male. Although two- thirds of people have advanced liver disease when they seek medical help, one ...


Determination of diffusing capacity by modeling the dynamics of C/sup 18/O uptake in newborns

B. Bouferrache; G. Krim; N. Mejdoub; P. H. Quanjer; M. Freville; J. P. Libert IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1998

Dynamic modeling of lung C 18O diffusion is used to measure the C 18O transfer factor (TL co) of 14 newborns aged 1-4 mo. The model equation is based on the alveolar fractions of C 18O and on changing alveolar ventilation induced by the rebreathing conditions. The model does not involve the volume of the rebreathing bag which is usually ...


Design of coupling medium for pulmonary edema microwave detection system

S. Ahdi Rezaeieh; Y-Q Tan; A. Abbosh 2013 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium (APSURSI), 2013

Microwave systems have the potential to be used as a detection and monitoring tool for pulmonary edema. This target can be achieved by monitoring the accumulation of excessive fluids in human lungs. The main challenge facing such an application is the severe mismatch between the antenna or antenna array and human body tissues at the torso area. Since a low ...


The Analysis of Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia Using Spectral Analysis and Digital Filtering

Baxter F. Womack IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1971

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia is the phenomenon by which respiration modulates heart rate in normal humans and in many animals. This investigation was divided into the following three categories: 1) the development of a mathematical model relating respiration to those variations that it causes in heart rate; 2) the use of digital filtering techniques to attenuate fluctuations in heart rate which ...

    Transport processes represent important life-sustaining elements in all humans. These include mass transfer processes, including gas exchange in the lungs, transport across capillaries and alveoli, transport across the kidneys, and transport across cell membranes. These mass transfer processes affect how oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in your bloodstream, how metabolic waste products are removed from your blood, how nutrients are transported to tissues, and how all cells function throughout the body. A discussion of kidney dialysis and gas exchange mechanisms is included. Another element in biomedical transport processes is that of momentum transport and fluid flow. This describes how blood is propelled from the heart and throughout the cardiovascular system, how blood elements affect the body, including gas exchange, infection control, clotting of blood, and blood flow resistance, which affects cardiac work. A discussion of the measurement of the blood resistance to flow (vi cosity), blood flow, and pressure is also included. A third element in transport processes in the human body is that of heat transfer, including heat transfer inside the body towards the periphery as well as heat transfer from the body to the environment. A discussion of temperature measurements and body protection in extreme heat conditions is also included.

    This book addresses the problem of articulatory speech synthesis based on computed vocal tract geometries and the basic physics of sound production in it. Unlike conventional methods based on analysis/synthesis using the well- known source filter model, which assumes the independence of the excitation and filter, we treat the entire vocal apparatus as one mechanical system that produces sound by means of fluid dynamics. The vocal apparatus is represented as a three-dimensional time-varying mechanism and the sound propagation inside it is due to the non-planar propagation of acoustic waves through a viscous, compressible fluid described by the Navier-Stokes equations. We propose a combined minimum energy and minimum jerk criterion to compute the dynamics of the vocal tract during articulation. Theoretical error bounds and experimental results show that this method obtains a close match to the phonetic target positions while avoiding abrupt changes in the articulatory trajectory. The voc l folds are set into aerodynamic oscillation by the flow of air from the lungs. The modulated air stream then excites the moving vocal tract. This method shows strong evidence for source-filter interaction. Based on our results, we propose that the articulatory speech production model has the potential to synthesize speech and provide a compact parameterization of the speech signal that can be useful in a wide variety of speech signal processing problems.

  • Physiological Motion and Measurement

    Respiratory, heart, and circulatory movements that can be detected without contact by Doppler radar are concentrated not only in the thorax, where the lungs and heart lie, but they also occur in the abdomen, which moves during respiration, and at other points on the body where superficial pulses are present. This chapter first describes the motion associated with breathing and how this motion affects the skin surface motion. It then discusses the location and anatomy of the heart, the electrical and mechanical events that cause contraction, the motion of the heart during contraction, and how that motion affects chest wall motion. The chapter also describes the location and structure of the arteries and veins, how they distend as the blood pressure varies during the cardiac cycle, and how this distension affects the skin surface motion. Doppler radar measurement of heart and respiration is a measurement of surface motion.
