Effect of laryngeal mask airway insertion on parameters derived from catacrotic phase of photoplethysmography under different concentrations of remifentanil
Background: Some parameters have been extracted from photoplethysmography (PPG) with a good relativity with nociception, but without encouraging results in qualifying the balance of nociception-anti-nociception (NAN). The features of PPG have not been thoroughly depicted and more prospective univariate parameters... 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

Closed Loop Intravenous Drug Administration Using Photoplethysmography
     An optically-based injection control system has been developed for preclinical use for an intravenous drug delivery application. Current clinical drug delivery for oncology typically provides for intravenous administration without an awareness of achieved plasma concentration, yet interpatient variability produces consequences...

Algorithms for monitoring heart rate and respiratory rate from the video of a user’s face
  Abstract Smartphone cameras can measure heart rate (HR) by detecting pulsatile photoplethysmographic (iPPG) signals from post-processing the video of a subject’s face. The iPPG signal is often derived from variations in the intensity of the green channel as shown by Poh... Read more

A Novel Algorithm for Remote Photoplethysmography: Spatial Subspace Rotation
Wenjin Wang, Sander Stuijk, and Gerard de Haan, Eindhoven University of Technology, Philips Research, The Netherlands In this paper, we propose a conceptually novel algorithm, namely “Spatial Subspace Rotation” (2SR), that improves the robustness of remote photoplethysmography. Based on the assumption of... Read more

Evaluating Innovative In-ear Pulse Oximetry for Unobtrusive Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Monitoring during Sleep
Homecare is healthcare based on the principle “outpatient before inpatient,” with the aim of moving at least some care-delivery to the home. But reliable determination of vital signs at home requires new, smart sensors, which can be used by the... Read more
