As the symptoms and signs of heart diseases that cause sudden cardiac death, cardiac arrhythmia has attracted great attention. Due to limitations in time and space, traditional approaches to cardiac arrhythmias detection fail to provide a real-time continuous monitoring and testing service applicable in different environmental conditions. Integrated with(More)
—In spite of the rapid development of medicine, cardiovascular diseases are still the number one killer in the world. In France every year more than 50,000 people die suddenly due cardiac arrhythmias. Identification of high risk sudden death patient is still a challenge. To detect the cardiac arrhythmias, currently Holter is generally used to record 1~3(More)
PURPOSE Variants in complement factor H (CFH), the hypothetical LOC387715, and the high-temperature requirement A-1 (HTRA1) genes have been reported to be associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of reported common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CFH, LOC387715, and HTRA1(More)
The quantitative contributions of hemoglobin and myoglobin oxygenation in skeletal muscle depend on physiological factors, especially muscle blood flow (Q( m )) and capillary permeability-surface area (PS). Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can be used to quantify total heme oxidation, but it is unable to distinguish between hemoglobin and myoglobin.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether the previously reported noncoding variant of the complement factor H (CFH) gene and two coding variants of the complement component 3 (C3) gene are associated with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in Chinese patients. METHODS One hundred fifty Chinese patients with exudative AMD and 161 control individuals(More)
Energy consumption is the core issue in wireless sensor networks (WSN). To generate a node energy model that can accurately reveal the energy consumption of sensor nodes is an extremely important part of protocol development, system design and performance evaluation in WSNs. In this paper, by studying component energy consumption in different node states(More)
A multi-organ systems model of O(2) and CO(2) transport is developed to analyze the control of ventilation and blood flow during hypoxia. Among the aspects of the control processes that this model addressed are possible mechanisms responsible for the second phase of the ventilatory hypoxic response to mild hypoxia, i.e., hypoxic ventilatory decline (HVD).(More)
