Neurally mediated syncope (NMS) patients suffer from sudden loss of consciousness, which is associated with a high rate of falls and hospitalization. NMS negatively impacts a subject's quality of life and is a growing cost issue in our aging society, as its incidence increases with age. In this paper, we present a solution for prediction of NMS, which is(More)
Syncope is a common disorder with a lifetime prevalence of about 40%. Implantable cardiac electronic devices, including implantable loop recorders (ILR) and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD), are well established in syncope management. However, despite the successful use of ILR and ICD, diagnosis and therapy still remain challenging in many(More)
Two methodologies for neurally mediated syncope (NMS) prediction, based on the joint analysis of the electrocardiogram (ECG) and photoplethysmogram (PPG), are compared. Several features that characterize the variations in the inotropic, chronotropic, vascular tone and blood pressure surrogates were extracted and fed into two prediction models. The first(More)
