To understand the MCG, electrical models of the heart must be used in which the basic building-block is usually the current dipole. The dipole's magnetic field is generally made up of two parts: 1. the contribution by the dipole element itself, which is mathematically simple; 2. the contribution by the current generated in the volume conductor by the(More)
Previously it was shown that Bn, the component of the heart's magnetic field which is normal to the chest, is in large part produced directly by the generators in the heart; the volume-current (or boundary) contribution to Bn is relatively small. It was also shown that the distribution of Bn across the chest could be displayed as an arrow map which visually(More)
A covalent core-shell structured protein cluster composed of hemoglobin (Hb) at the center and human serum albumins (HSA) at the periphery, Hb-HSAm, is an artificial O2 carrier that can function as a red blood cell substitute. Here we described the preparation of a novel Hb-HSA3 cluster with antioxidant activities and its O2 complex stable in aqueous H2O2(More)
The magnetic field produced by a current dipole is made up of two parts: the field from the dipole element, and from the current generated by the dipole in the volume conductor. It was previously shown for the semi-infinite volume conductor, infinite slab, and the sphere that the volume-current contribution is zero to the component of magnetic field which(More)
We examined a new method for estimating tidal volume from the electrocardiogram (ECG) in order to dispense with the need for sensors used exclusively for tidal volume measurement. The direction of the vector loop in the QRS complex (DVL) was defined as the direction of the diagonal line of the rectangle which circumscribed the vector loop obtained from two(More)
