This paper presents a methodological framework for robust estimation of the correlation dimension in HRV signals. It includes (i) a fast algorithm for on-line computation of correlation sums; (ii) log-log curves fitting to a sigmoidal function for robust maximum slope estimation discarding the estimation according to fitting requirements; (iii) three(More)
An increase in the dispersion of action potential duration restitution (APDR) has been associated with higher propensity to suffer from ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Recently, a marker, Δα, was proposed to non-invasively quantify APDR dispersion from the electrocardiogram (ECG) by computing the ratio between differences in the(More)
The work presented in this paper aims at assessing human emotion recognition by means of the analysis of the heart rate variability (HRV) with varying spectral bands based on respiratory frequency (RF). Three specific emotional states are compared corresponding to calm-neutral state (Relax), positive elicitation (Joy) and negative elicitation (Fear).(More)
Isolated episodes of heart rhythm disorders have been reported during 40 years of space flight, triggering research to evaluate the risk of developing life-threatening arrhythmias induced by prolonged exposure to weightlessness. In fact, these events could compromise astronaut performance during exploratory missions, as well as pose at risk the astronaut(More)
The purpose of this study is to characterize and attenuate the influence of mean heart rate (HR) on nonlinear heart rate variability (HRV) indices (correlation dimension, sample, and approximate entropy) as a consequence of being the HR the intrinsic sampling rate of HRV signal. This influence can notably alter nonlinear HRV indices and lead to biased(More)
