Combining Optical Character Recognition with Paper ECG Digitization
Objective: We propose a MATLAB-based tool to convert electrocardiography (ECG) waveforms from paper-based ECG records into digitized ECG signals that is vendor-agnostic. The tool is packaged as an open source standalone graphical user interface (GUI) based application. Methods and procedures:... Read more

MLBF-Net: A Multi-Lead-Branch Fusion Network for Multi-Class Arrhythmia Classification Using 12-Lead ECG
Automatic arrhythmia detection using 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) signal plays a critical role in early prevention and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. In the previous studies on automatic arrhythmia detection, most methods concatenated 12 leads of ECG into a matrix, and then... Read more

Accurate Fiducial Point Detection Using Haar Wavelet for Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure Estimation
Pulse Arrival Time (PAT) derived from Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Photoplethysmogram (PPG) for cuff-less Blood Pressure (BP) measurement has been a contemporary and widely accepted technique. However, the features extracted for it are conventionally from an isolated pulse of ECG and... Read more

Catheter Treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia: A Reference-Less Pace-Mapping Method to Identify Ablation Targets
       Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a life-threatening arrhythmia. In patients with myocardial infarction, electrical activation of the ventricles is impaired by the remodelling of the infarcted area, which results in conduction blocks, and slow conducting zones with sparse surviving fibres. Slow... Read more

Deep Learning Based Proarrhythmia Analysis Using Field Potentials Recorded from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells Derived Cardiomyocytes
       Abstract: An early characterization of drug-induced cardiotoxicity may be possible by combining comprehensive in vitro proarrhythmia assay and deep learning techniques. We aimed to develop a method to automatically detect irregular beating rhythm of field potentials recorded from human pluripotent stem... Read more

An Open-Source Feature Extraction Tool for the Analysis of Peripheral Physiological Data
      Electrocardiogram, electrodermal activity, electromyogram, continuous blood pressure, and impedance cardiography are among the most commonly used peripheral physiological signals (biosignals) in psychological studies and healthcare applications, including health tracking, sleep quality assessment, disease early-detection/diagnosis, and understanding human emotional and affective...

An Adaptive Seismocardiography (SCG)-ECG Multimodal Framework for Cardiac Gating Using Artificial Neural Networks
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. Relying upon a three-layer artificial neural network that... Read more

Unobtrusive Detection of Simulated Orthostatic Hypotension and Supine Hypertension using Ballistocardiogram and Electrocardiogram of Healthy Adults
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... Read more
