The effect of stimulus duration on the initial fetal heart rate (FHR) acceleration response was evaluated by assessing its amplitude and span following a single vibroacoustic stimulation with durations of 0 (sham), 1, 3, or 5 seconds. Statistically significant differences were observed in the mean amplitude and duration of acceleration in groups 3 and 5(More)
An automated patient-specific system to classify the level of sedation in ICU patients using heart rate variability signal is presented in this paper. ECG from 70 mechanically ventilated adult patients with administered sedatives in an ICU setting were used to develop a support vector machine based system for sedation depth monitoring using several heart(More)
BACKGROUND Generalized triphasic waves (TPWs) occur in both metabolic encephalopathies and non-convulsive status epilepticus (NCSE). Empiric trials of benzodiazepines (BZDs) or non-sedating AED (NSAEDs) are commonly used to differentiate the two, but the utility of such trials is debated. The goal of this study was to assess response rates of such trials(More)
Millions of patients are admitted each year to intensive care units (ICUs) in the United States. A significant fraction of ICU survivors develop life-long cognitive impairment, incurring tremendous financial and societal costs. Delirium, a state of impaired awareness, attention and cognition that frequently develops during ICU care, is a major risk factor(More)
