Surface electroenterogram (EEnG) recording is a novel technique for monitoring intestinal motility non-invasively. However, surface EEnG recordings are contaminated by cardiac activity, the respiratory artefact, movement artefacts and other types of interference. The goal of this work is to remove electrocardiogram (ECG) interference and movement artefacts(More)
Although the surface electroenterogram (EEnG) is a weak signal contaminated by strong physiological interference, such as ECG and respiration, abdominal surface recordings of the EEnG could provide a non-invasive method of studying intestinal activity. The goal of this work was to develop a modular, active, low-cost and easy-to-use sensor to obtain a direct(More)
Intestinal myoelectrical activity (IMA), which determines bowel mechanical activity, is the result of two components: a low-frequency component [slow wave (SW)] that is always present, and a high-frequency component [spike bursts (SB)] which is associated with bowel contractions. Despite of the diagnostic significance of internal recordings of IMA, clinical(More)
Surface recording of electroenterogram (EEnG) is a non-invasive method for monitoring intestinal myoelectrical activity. However, surface EEnG is seriously affected by a variety of interferences: cardiac activity, respiration, very low frequency components and movement artefacts. The aim of this study is to eliminate respiratory interference and very low(More)
An external electroenterogram (EEnG) is the recording of the small bowel myoelectrical signal using contact electrodes placed on the abdominal surface. It is a weak signal affected by possible movements and by the interferences of respiration and, principally, of the cardiac signal. In this paper an adaptive filtering technique was proposed to identify and(More)
The surface electroenterogram (EEnG) is a non-invasive method of studying myoelectrical bowel activity. However, surface EEnG recordings are contaminated by cardiac activity, respiratory and motion artifacts, and other sources of interference. The aim of this work is to remove the respiration artifact and the very low frequency components from surface EEnG(More)
The electroenterogram (EEnG) is a surface recording of the myoelectrical activity of the smooth muscle layer of the small intestine. It is made up of two signals: a low-frequency component, known as the slow wave (SW), and high-frequency signals, known as spike bursts (SB). Most methods of studying bowel motility are invasive due to the difficult anatomic(More)
A study is made to correlate the electrical and mechanical activity of the smooth muscle of the small bowel. Bioelectrical signal recording from the intestinal serosa (electroenterogram) comprises a slow wave (SW) and spike burst (SB), though only the latter reflects intestinal pressure. The electroenterogram and smooth muscle pressure are simultaneously(More)
Myoelectrical recording could provide an alternative technique for assessing intestinal motility, which is a topic of great interest in gastroenterology since many gastrointestinal disorders are associated with intestinal dysmotility. The pacemaker activity (slow wave, SW) of the electroenterogram (EEnG) has been detected in abdominal surface recordings,(More)
Surface electroenterogram (EEnG) is a non-invasive method for monitoring the intestinal motility. However, surface EEnG recordings are contaminated by movement artifact, cardiac activity, respiratory artifact and other interferences. The aim of this work is to remove movement artifacts by means of a combined method of empirical mode decomposition (EMD) and(More)
