  • A portable multi-sensor datalogger for heart rate variability (HRV) study during skydiver's free fall

    This paper explores the possibilities offered for a small data-acquisition module that is designed for occupational medicine in harsh environments. The device aims at collecting medical as well as environmental information simultaneously in a small volume. Our first, but not exclusive, goal application is parachute diving. The monitoring of the heart rate is performed by a 3 electrode ECG circuit. The purpose is to investigate the heart rhythm variability (HRV) for a person exposed to such an environment. In our case the influence of high altitudes and zero-gravity is examined. The module is equipped with 3 accelerometers to investigate the person's acceleration and position. The altitude is monitored with an absolute pressure sensor and a temperature sensor. The module uses the acronym RAMSES : "remote-analog- multisensor-ECG-system".

  • 3D modeling of detected pleural thickenings through thin plate spline interpolation

    Pleuramesothelioma is a malignant tumor. A computer-assisted diagnosis system shall provide physicians with the assessment of the detected pleural thickening from the 3D CT data. This paper describes a new, improved method to assess the size of detected thickening using both the 2D and 3D thin plate spline. First, a coordinate transformation was applied. Next, set of landmarks was selected as input for the thin plate spline. The final step is the numerical area integration. The results show that the calculated area was more accurate than the former pixel counting technique, and promise further automatic development.

  • Is computerization worth the price? an evaluation of 7 years use of tmr

    Pickens Health Center, a university-based, multi-program ambutatory care center, conducted an evaluation of its computer services to determine whether the computerization of medical practice was worth the price. Pickens had implemented TMR, an interactive medical and management information system, in 1977. After seven years of computerization, increasing financial pressures forced Pickens to ask itself whether its programs might be better off financially and operationally if converted back to a manual system. An indepth anaLysis of the use of TMR at Pickens HeaLth Center led to the conclusion that computerization was cost-effective, encouraged high quality medical care and was worth the price.

  • Screen of a durene-degrading bacterium

    A durene-degrading strain (J4) was isolated. The paper researched the decomposition of durene through J4. The strain can grow in the medium containing durene and experiences a longer stationary phase of growth than with out durene. The analysis of durene in different time showed J4 can decompose durene, which can let the bacterium used in the disposition of organic waste water containing durene. Based on morphological, phyxiological and biochemical characteristics, J4 was identified as Bacillus Cohn.

  • Linear predictive coding of myoelectric signals

    Despite the great interest towards long term recordings of electromyographic (EMG) signals, which find applications, for example, in telemedicine, only a few studies have dealt with the compression of these signals. We propose a lossy coding technique for surface EMG signals. The technique is based on the linear predictive coding paradigm widely used for speech compression. The algorithm was tested on both simulated and experimental signals. Mean frequency, median frequency, variance, skewness and kurtosis of the EMG signals were preserved with an error less than 3% with respect to the original values for synthetic signals and experimental signals, reducing the bitrate from 24 kbit/s (12 kbit/s after downsampling) to 352 bit/s, with a compression factor of 97.1%. It was concluded that the linear predictive coding paradigm can be effectively used for high rate compression of surface EMG signals when preservation of only the power spectrum of the signal is of interest. This has applications in ergonomics and occupational medicine.

  • Production and preventive control of the pollution during the interior design for dwellings

    Stylist is designers of the interior space for swellings. The designers not only provide the personalized design scheme but also create a scientific and comfortable living environment for habitant. However, unreasonably designs can bright unnecessary pollution to indoor environment. Therefore, as an important part of decorative design, the production of the pollution from decoration could be controlled and eliminated by the reasonable design. In this paper, it can be found that the stylist should take some measures such as the rational division of space, correctly handle the modeling, the use of green materials and the late proper collocation and so on to make the owner can have a safe, healthy, comfortable, beautiful home space.

  • Medical thermal imaging procedure for HAVS assessment

    Introduction: Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is an occupational condition that affects subjects exposed to vibrating tools at the workplace and needs an accurate quantitative and objective diagnostic test to aid clinicians in the judgment of the degree of injury and adequate treatment. An objective assessing method is needed to provide a permanent evidence record of the degree of injury. In case of chronic or permanent injury an objective measure to specify an appropriate compensation is required. Methodology: Medical thermal imaging was used to monitor the hands exposed to an objective mechanical provocation test involving vertical vibration, for 2 minutes at 31.5Hz and 36 mm/s2. This test was followed by a thermal provocation challenge (CST) of the hand for a period of 1 minute at 20°C. Images were taken during the whole procedure. In order to assess the peripheral temperature changes of the dorsal hand, a computational model was developed and the images were standardized and analyzed. Results: It was possible to discriminate between controls and patients (p<;0.05) and to identify through medical thermal imaging the affected fingers and their temperature changes, assessing objectively the stage of the injury. Conclusion: The proposed methodology is objective and repeatable, providing important physiological information of the evolutionary stage of HAVS. Medical thermal imaging is advised as a complementary diagnostic method, providing permanent evidence of the condition in support to medical history in medico-legal liabilities.

  • Purifying effects on high concentration of benzene, toluene and xylene from air cleaners under ventilation

    This paper aimed to observe effects on high concentration of benzene, toluene and xylene (10 mg m-3, 8.5 mg m-3, 2.7 mg m-3for benzene, toluene and xylene, respectively) from 4 sets of air cleaners in a large environmental chamber. The results showed that the performance of 4# air cleaner was the most efficient in removing pollutants. It took 5 hours, 3 hours and 3 hours to decrease the concentrations of benzene, toluene and xylene respectively under the national standard limits. All tested air cleaners played significant roles in removing pollutants even when ventilating. Therefore, using both ventilation and air cleaner could shorten delay time of moving in a decorated house freshly. It suggests that a long time of performance testing of air cleaners should be included in the national standard to meet practical needs, and clean air delivery rate (CADR) should be indicated for the specific pollutant in a instruction of air cleaners.
