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)
Teleconsultation services for cardiology patients have been installed and are in routine use since December 2000, connecting a primary health center in rural Crete to a regional hospital. Since efficiency and effectiveness are key factors in the acceptance of the service, integration of the services with the primary health record, support of clinical(More)
A Risk Assessment (RA) framework was employed to determine what protection would be adequate and reasonable for the assets of a cardiology eHealth service deployed on the island of Crete. In the context of HYGEIAnet, the regional health telematics network of Crete, teleconsultation services for cardiology patients have been installed and are in routine use(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)
The PhysioNet Challenge 2009 addresses the prediction of acute hypotensive episodes (AHEs), which are serious clinical events since they could result in multiple organ failure and eventually in death. This objective is pursued with two different events: a) event 1: the separation of records with critical AHE (subgroup H1) in the forecast window (FW), the(More)
Despite progress in information and communication technologies (ICT), communication is still a bottleneck for health early warning and response systems. Satellite communications combined with a local WiFi network promise rapid deployment and facilitate coordinated response and optimal adjustment of resources for disaster management. In this paper, we(More)
Within the framework of a multifacet and long term research on coronary heart disease, the possible influence of psychological factors on the disease was investigated. All coronary patients admitted to the Department are examined in special sessions. The examination is concerned with the personality structure, psychiatric or psychological abnormalities(More)
