J-BHI publishes original papers describing recent advances in the field of biomedical and health informatics where information and communication technologies intersect with health, healthcare, life sciences and biomedicine.
Luis Estrada (M’08) was born in Panama City, Panama, in 1982. He received the B.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering from the Universidad Latina de Panamá, Panama, in 2004 and the M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering from the Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, in 2009. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering at the UPC, the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and the Biomedical Research Networking Center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN), Barcelona. His current research interests include signal processing techniques as well as the use of novel sensors and biomedical instrumentation for the evaluation of respiratory muscles. Mr. Estrada is a member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
JBHI, Featured ArticlesImprovement in Neural Respiratory Drive Estimation From Diaphragm Electromyographic Signals Using Fixed Sample Entropy
Diaphragm electromyography is a valuable technique for the recording of electrical activity of the diaphragm. The analysis of diaphragm electromyographic (EMGdi) signal amplitude is an alternative approach for the indirect quantification of neural respiratory drive (NRD), which reflects the load... Read more
