Continuous Speech for Improved Learning Pathological Voice Disorders

Continuous Speech for Improved Learning Pathological Voice Disorders 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)
Goal: Numerous studies had successfully differentiated normal and abnormal voice samples. Nevertheless, further classification had rarely been attempted. This study proposes a novel approach, using continuous Mandarin speech instead of a single vowel, to classify four common voice disorders (i.e. functional dysphonia, neoplasm, phonotrauma, and vocal palsy). read more

Ultrasound Localization of Nitinol Wire of Sub-Wavelength Dimension

Ultrasound Localization of Nitinol Wire of Sub-Wavelength Dimension 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)
Goal: To enhance endovascular navigation using surgical guidewires and the use of ionizing radiation, we demonstrate a method for ultrasonic localization of wires with diameters less than the wavelength of ultrasound in the medium. read more

Heart-Lung Interactions During Mechanical Ventilation: Analysis via a Cardiopulmonary Simulation Model

Heart-Lung Interactions During Mechanical Ventilation: Analysis via a Cardiopulmonary Simulation Model 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Heart-lung interaction mechanisms are generally not well understood. Mechanical ventilation, for example, accentuates such interactions and could compromise cardiac activity. Thereby, assessment of ventilation-induced changes in cardiac function is considered…
