Model-Based Estimation of Respiratory Parameters from Capnography, with Application to Diagnosing Obstructive Lung Disease
Capnography is the noninvasive and effort-independent measurement of carbon dioxide concentration in exhaled breath, as a function of time or exhaled volume. Time-based capnography – the focus of this paper – is widely used in ambulances and hospitals. However, its quantitative... Read more

Identifying Physical Activity Profiles in COPD Patients Using Topic Models
With the growing amount of physical activity (PA) measures, the need for methods and algorithms that automatically analyse and interpret unannotated data increases. In this paper PA is seen as a combination of multi-modal constructs that can co-occur in different... Read more
