Seismocardiogram (SCG) is the low-frequency vibrations signal recorded from the chest using accelerometers. Peaks on dorsoventral and sternal SCG correspond to specific cardiac events. Prior research work has shown the potential of extracting such peaks for various types of monitoring and diagnosis applications. However, annotation of these peaks is not a(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this research was to design a delineation algorithm that could detect specific fiducial points of the seismocardiogram (SCG) signal with or without using the electrocardiogram (ECG) R-wave as the reference point. The detected fiducial points were used to estimate cardiac time intervals. Due to complexity and sensitivity of the SCG(More)
The purpose of this research is to propose an algorithm that could accomplish automatic delineation of the seismocardiogram (SCG) signal without using a reference electrocardiogram R-wave. As a result, the SCG signal could be used, as a stand-alone solution for many cardiovascular medical applications such as hemorrhage detection, cardiac computed(More)
The speed of intervention is one of the major factors in increasing the survival rate of patients suffering from acute coronary ischemia. The two principal techniques currently in use: pharmacological and interventional, can be employed to re-canalize coronary arteries, but the former is slow acting and often leads to incomplete reperfusion, while the(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid restoration of vessel patency after acute myocardial infarction is key to reducing myocardial muscle death and increases survival rates. Standard therapies include thrombolysis and direct PTCA. Alternative or adjunctive emergency therapies that could be initiated by minimally trained personnel in the field are of potential clinical benefit.(More)
