This paper introduces a new methodology for compressing ECG signals in an automatic way guaranteeing signal interpretation quality. The approach is based on noise estimation in the ECG signal that is used as a compression threshold in the coding stage. The Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees algorithm is used to code the signal in the wavelet domain.(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of an architecture based on the integration of simple network management protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) and the standard ISO/IEEE 11073 (X73) to manage technical information in home-based telemonitoring scenarios. This architecture includes the development of an SNMPv3-proxyX73 agent which comprises a(More)
This paper presents a methodology to transmit clinical video over wireless networks in real-time. A 3-D set partitioning in hierarchical trees compression prior to transmission is proposed. In order to guarantee the clinical quality of the compressed video, a clinical evaluation specific to each video modality has to be made. This evaluation indicates the(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of an architecture based on the combination of ontologies, rules, web services, and the autonomic computing paradigm to manage data in home-based telemonitoring scenarios. The architecture includes two layers: 1) a conceptual layer and 2) a data and communication layer. On the one hand, the conceptual layer(More)
This paper describes an echocardiogram coding method that takes into account the visualization modes in order to compress efficiently the echocardiogram, a methodology to evaluate compressed echocardiograms and the evaluation of the compression method using the proposed evaluation methodology. The compression method takes advantage of the particular(More)
This paper presents a complete study of wide-area wireless ECG transmission for real-time cardiac tele-monitoring taking into account both technical and clinical aspects, in order to provide recommendations for real-time monitoring considering both channel parameters and the tolerance of cardiologists to the effects of interruptions introduced during(More)
A new real-time compression method for electrocardiogram (ECG) signals has been developed based on the wavelet transform approach. The method is specifically adaptable for packetized telecardiology applications. The signal is segmented into beats and a beat template is subtracted from them, producing a residual signal. Beat templates and residual signals(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this work is to contribute to personalized clinical management in home-based telemonitoring scenarios by developing an ontology-driven solution that enables a wide range of remote chronic patients to be monitored at home. METHODS Through three stages, the challenges of integration and management were met through the ontology(More)
A plethora of digital ECG formats have been proposed and implemented. This heterogeneity hinders the design and development of interoperable systems and entails critical integration issues for the healthcare information systems. This paper aims at performing a comprehensive overview on the current state of affairs of the interoperable exchange of digital(More)
