Non-Invasive Cardiac and Respiratory Activity Assessment From Various Human Body Locations Using Bioimpedance
Objective: Bioimpedance sensing is a powerful technique that measures the tissue impedance and captures important physiological parameters including blood flow, lung movements, muscle contractions, body fluid shifts, and other cardiovascular parameters. This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of the modality... Read more
Semi-Automated Graphical System for Calculating Pulmonary Vascular Impedances in a Clinical Setting
Computer graphic on right illustrates the steps necessary to analyze PVZ using the CompositePVZ © software. This includes measuring pulmonary artery (PA) diameter, tracing of PA pressure waveforms, pulsed-wave Doppler waveforms, and corresponding electrocardiogram signals. It also illustrates the user...
