To more accurately trigger data acquisition and reduce radiation exposure of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), a multimodal framework utilizing both electrocardiography (ECG) and seismocardiography (SCG) for CCTA prospective gating is presented.
This paper focuses on the development of a passive, lightweight skin patch sensor that can measure fluid volume changes in the heart in a non-invasive, point-of-care setting. The wearable sensor is an electromagnetic, self-resonant sensor configured into a specific pattern to formulate its three passive elements (resistance, capacitance, and inductance).
Atrial fibrillation (Afib) contributes significantly to overall cardiovascular risk. Widespread screening for Afib in primary care is sometimes performed by palpation, but suffers from low accuracy and is dependent on clinician experience.
Effective management of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension (SH-OH) due autonomic failure requires a frequent and timely adjustment of medication throughout the day to maintain the blood pressure (BP) within the normal range – i.e., an accurate depiction of BP is a key prerequisite of effective management. One of the emerging technologies that provide one’s circadian and long-term physiological status with increased usability is unobtrusive zero-effort monitoring.
Brain stimulation has emerged as an effective treatment for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric diseases. Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and essential tremor have FDA indications for electrical brain stimulation using intracranially implanted electrodes. Interfacing implantable brain devices with local and cloud computing resources have the potential to improve electrical stimulation efficacy, disease tracking, and management.
Diabetic patients with silent myocardial ischemia (SMI) have elevated rates of morbidity and mortality and need intensive care and monitoring. An early predictor of SMI may lead to early diagnosis and medical treatment to prevent progression and adverse clinical events. Therefore, this paper was aimed to evaluate the radial pulse spectrum as risk markers to improve the risk stratification of SMI in type-2 diabetic patients.
Part of the Special Issue Advanced Internet of Things in a Personalized Healthcare System: Validation, Analysis and Utilization The health of patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) can change frequently and inexplicably. Crucial events and activities responsible for these changes often go unnoticed.
Intestinal electrical stimulation via implants is already used to treat several disorders, like constipation or incontinence. Stimulation parameters are most often empiric and not based on systematic studies.
