The photoplethysmographic (PPG) signal has the potential to aid in the acquisition and analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) signal: a non-invasive quantitative marker of the autonomic nervous system that could be used to assess cardiac health and other physiologic conditions. A low-power wireless PPG device was custom-developed to monitor, acquire and(More)
This paper reports a preliminary investigation to evaluate the significance of various nonlinear dynamics approaches to analyze the heart rate variability (HRV) signal in children with sleep disordered breathing (SDB). Data collected from children in the age group of 1-17 years diagnosed with sleep apnea were used in this study. Both short term (5 minutes)(More)
—The analysis of time duration between consecutive R waves of electrocardiogram (ECG) is a standard method to evaluate the variations in heart rate. The physiological literature reveals that blood glucose levels modulate the autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity and heart rate variability (HRV) is representative of the cardiovascular autonomic function.(More)
