Herbert F. Jelinek

Herbert F. Jelinek (M’09) received the B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in human genetics from the University of New SouthWales, Sydney, Australia in 1984, followed by a Graduate Diploma degree in neuroscience from the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia in 1986, and the Ph.D. degree in medicine from the University of Sydney, Sydney in 1996. He is an honorary Clinical Associate Professor with the Australian School of Advanced Medicine, Macquarie University, Sydney, and a Member of the Center for Research in Complex Systems, Charles Sturt University, Albury, Australia. He has been organizing a rural diabetes complications screening research project formore than ten years inAustralia and has published widely on ECG signal processing and diabetic retinopathy image analysis, as well as biomarkers associated with diabetes disease progression. His current research interests include neurogenetics of diabetes and cognitive function. Dr. Jelinek is a Member of the IEEE Biomedical Engineering Society and the Australian Diabetes Association.

Detecting Subclinical Diabetic Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy by Analysing Ventricular Repolarization Dynamics
Cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN), a major complication of diabetes, is characterized by a gradual increase in damage to the autonomic nerve fibers that results in abnormalities in ventricular repolarization (VR) dynamics. CAN needs to be detected at the subclinical stage,... Read more

Analyzing Systolic–Diastolic Interval Interaction Characteristics in Diabetic Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy Progression
This paper proposes an ECG based measure for analysing Cardiac autonomic Neuropathy (CAN) related alteration in the temporal synchronization of left ventricle function (i.e. Systolic-diastolic interval interaction (SDI)). The measure was validated in diabetic CAN progression using three subject groups... Read more
