Modeling Large Sparse Data for Feature Selection: Hospital Admission Predictions of the Dementia Patients using Primary Care Electronic Health Records
A growing elderly population suffering from incurable, chronic conditions such as dementia present a continual strain on medical services due to mental impairment paired with high comorbidity resulting in increased hospitalization risk. The identification of at risk individuals allows for... Read more

Novel Technique for Noninvasive Detection of Localized Dynamic Brain Signals by Using Transcranial Static Magnetic Fields
The techniques for noninvasive measurement of brain function such as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) have been used in diagnosing brain conditions. However, the conventional techniques have critical limitations of spatial... Read more

The Influence of Impeller Geometries on Hemolysis in Bearingless Centrifugal Pumps
Goal: The importance of the main impeller design parameters in bearingless centrifugal pumps with respect to hemolysis for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) applications are studied in this work. Methods: Impeller prototypes were designed based on theoretical... Read more

Modeling the Steady-State Effects of Mean Arterial Pressure on the Kidneys
Goal: We describe the relationship between mean arterial pressure (MAP) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) since therapies affecting MAP can have large effects on kidney function. Methods: We developed a closed-loop, steady-state mechanistic model of the human kidney with a... Read more

Directed Connectivity Analysis of the Neuro-Cardio- and Respiratory Systems Reveals Novel Biomarkers of Susceptibility to SUDEP
The paper describes the results from a unique experimental and analytical study in a well-controlled animal model of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). As the name implies, SUDEP is difficult to impossible to study in humans due to the... Read more

A Feasibility Study of Non-invasive Continuous Estimation of Brachial Pressure Derived from Arterial and Venous Lines During Dialysis
Objective: Intradialytic haemodynamic instability is a significant clinical problem, leading to end-organ ischaemia and contributing to morbidity and mortality in haemodialysis patients. Non-invasive continuous blood pressure monitoring is not currently part of routine practice but may aid detection and prevention... Read more

Quantifying Tremor in Essential Tremor using Inertial Sensors — Validation of an Algorithm
Background Assessment of essential tremor is often done by a trained clinician who observes the limbs during different postures and actions and subsequently rates the tremor. While this method has been shown to be reliable, the inter- and intra-rater reliability... Read more
