Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and entails an increased risk of thromboembolic events. Prediction of the termination of an AF episode, based on noninvasive techniques, can benefit patients, doctors and health systems. The method described in this paper is based on two-lead surface electrocardiograms (ECGs): 1-min ECG(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate costs, benefits and cost-effectiveness of anti-TNF agents in PsA patients with inadequate response to conventional treatment. METHODS A total of 107 patients, from nine Italian rheumatology centres, with different forms of PsA were given anti-TNF treatment, mainly etanercept (87%). Information on resource use, health-related quality(More)
The PhysioNet Challenge 2004 addresses two different goals: to separate the persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) from the paroxysmal AF (event 1) and, in case of paroxysmal AF, to identify the one-minute ECG strip just before the termination of the AF episode (event 2). Both events were approached through the separation of the atrial activity by the(More)
