Exercise electrocardiography is widely used for initial identification of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). This study compares the measurements of ST-segment changes during exercise and during early postexercise recovery in terms of diagnostic discrimination capacity and optimal partition values. Data from 1876 patients undergoing a routine(More)
BACKGROUND ST/HR hysteresis is one of the better diagnostic exercise ECG variables for coronary artery disease. This study evaluates the long-term prognostic value of ST/HR hysteresis in predicting acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and all-cause mortality in men and women. METHODS The study population consisted of 8317 patients who had undergone routine(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate whether acute volume changes in single volume segments of the left ventricle can be correlated with global volume changes. If so, changes in global volume might be predicted from changes in segmental volumes. DESIGN Volume changes were recorded in six pigs in five intraventricular segments, from apex to heart base, using the(More)
Quantitative analysis of electrocardiographic ST-segment/heart rate relationship (ST/HR loop) during early recovery phase of exercise stress test provides a sensitive tool for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD). This study evaluates the effect of data sampling frequency on the diagnostic performance of ST/HR loop in 1876 patients undergoing a(More)
A carbon-dioxide-producing lung model capable of simulating spontaneous breathing is presented. It consists of a piston in a cylinder, a mixing chamber and a dead space volume. The piston is driven by a direct-current motor controlled by a micro-processor and a servo unit. Respiratory waveform and rate, tidal volume, carbon dioxide production and dead space(More)
The objective of this paper is to investigate how to best position the sensing electrodes on a single segment conductance catheter, and to calculate the expected performance. Using electrode potential data, obtained with the present five segment conductance catheter in pig experiments, we have interpolated the electrical field at any given point of time,(More)
The temporal distribution of the diagnostic information for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) provided by exercise-induced electrocardiographic (ECG) ST-segment amplitude changes in different ECG leads in men and women has not been fully investigated. To shed further light in this area, 1877 electrocardiograms selected from 8322 patients(More)
