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 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 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)
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)
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)
Our interest in the development of transition-metal catalysis for the realisation of vicinal diamination reactions of alkenes started about a decade ago. A number of successful transformations in this area have been developed using palladium catalysis. As a challenging aspect of major importance, the palladium-catalysed coupling of alkyl-nitrogen bonds(More)
An ontology-based approach to deal with data and management procedure integration in home-based scenarios is presented in this paper. The proposed ontology not only provides a means to represent exchanged data but also to unify the way of accessing, controlling, evaluating and transferring information remotely. The structure of this ontology has been(More)
This paper presents a methodological approach to the design and evaluation of an interface for an ontology-based system used for designing care plans for monitoring patients at home. In order to define the care plans, physicians need a tool for creating instances of the ontology and configuring some rules. Our purpose is to develop an interface to allow(More)
This paper investigates the application of the enterprise information system (EIS) paradigm to standardized cardiovascular condition monitoring. There are many specifications in cardiology, particularly in the ECG standardization arena. The existence of ECG formats, however, does not guarantee the implementation of homogeneous, standardized solutions for(More)
