The problem of synthesizing the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) from the signals recorded using three special ECG leads is studied in detail. The implementation of that concept into the design of a new mobile ECG transtelephonic system is presented. The system has two separate units: a stationary diagnostic-calibration center and a mobile ECG(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac memory (CM) refers to persistent T-wave changes on resumption of normal conduction after a period of abnormal ventricular activation. Traditionally, to observe CM, normal ventricular activation had to be restored, limiting the exploration of this phenomenon in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE This study sought to prove that CM can be(More)
Clinical interest in electrocardiographic (ECG) phenomena of early ventricular repolarization (EVR) has been rekindled recently mainly because of their clinically established association with fatal cardiac arrhythmias, particularly in otherwise healthy individuals with no (or minimal) structural diseases of the heart. ECG phenomena of EVR have often been(More)
UNLABELLED Remote surveillance is important for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Atrial signal recognition with conventional monitoring devices is difficult; remote AF detection is predominantly accomplished by R-R interval analysis. Twelve lead ECG (12L) displays atrial activity and remains the gold standard for AF diagnosis. CardioBip is a portable(More)
Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) remains a leading cause of mortality in the United States. Finding accurate and cost effective solutions for AMI diagnosis in Emergency Departments (ED) is vital. Consecutive, or serial, ECGs, taken minutes apart, have the potential to improve detection of AMI in patients presented to ED with symptoms of chest pain. By(More)
BACKGROUND There are no established criteria to differentiate new from old left bundle branch block (LBBB). This complicates management of patients with LBBB and suspected acute coronary syndrome. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to develop electrocardiographic (ECG) criteria to differentiate new and old LBBB. METHODS All LBBB tracings (n =(More)
CardioBip (CB) is a hand-held patient-activated device for recording and wireless transmission of reconstructed 12-lead ECG (12CB) based on patient specific matrices. It has 5 contact points: 3 precordial and 2 on the device top serving as limb leads when touched by index fingers. To determine whether CB could be used to monitor coronary disease (CAD)(More)
UNLABELLED Differential diagnosis of symptomatic events in post-ablation atrial fibrillation (AF) patients (pts) is important; in particular, accurate, reliable detection of AF or atrial flutter (AFL) is essential. However, existing remote monitoring devices usually require attached leads and are not suitable for prolonged monitoring; moreover, most do not(More)
Non-invasive ventilation performed through an oronasal mask is a standard in clinical and homecare mechanical ventilation. Besides all its advantages, inevitable leaks through the mask cause errors in the feedback information provided by the airflow sensor and, hence, patient-ventilator asynchrony with multiple negative consequences. Here we investigate a(More)
UNLABELLED Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) diagnosis in type II diabetes (DM2) patients is difficult and ECG findings are often non-diagnostic or inconclusive. We developed computer algorithms to process standard 12-lead ECG input data for quantitative 3-dimensional (3D) analysis (my3KGTM), and hypothesized that use of the my3KGTM's array of over 100(More)
