Despite advances in adult electrocardiography (ECG) and signal processing techniques, the analysis of fetal ECGs (fECG) is still in its infancy. The clinical potential of abdominal fECG monitoring by placing electrodes over mother's abdomen in antepartum (prior to labor) has been hampered by difficulties in obtaining a reliable fECG. We propose an algorithm(More)
A novel integrated physiological model of the interactions between the cardiovascular and respiratory systems has been in development for the past few years. The model has hundreds of parameters and variables representing the physical and physiological properties of the human cardiopulmonary system. It can simulate many dynamic states and scenarios. The(More)
Several cardiovascular and pulmonary models have been proposed in the last few decades. However, very few have addressed the interactions between these two systems. Our group has developed an integrated cardiopulmonary model (CP Model) that mathematically describes the interactions between the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, along with their main(More)
Apnea via breath-holding (BH) in air induces cardiorespiratory adaptation that involves the activation of several reflex mechanisms and their complex interactions. Hence, the effects of BH in air on cardiorespiratory function can become hardly predictable and difficult to be interpreted. Particularly, the effect on heart rate is not yet completely(More)
Many randomized clinical trials compare treatments which are intended to prolong life time following a particular disease. The log-rank test (LRT) given by Mantel (1966) is optimal in the comparison of treatment effect in randomized clinical trials assuming proportional hazards and a homogeneous population. However, the LRT is inefficient if the comparison(More)
In this paper, we aimed to achieve the indoor tracking control of a two-wheeled inverted pendulum (TWIP) vehicle. The attitude data are acquired from a low cost micro inertial measurement unit (IMU), and the ultra-wideband (UWB) technology is utilized to obtain an accurate estimation of the TWIP's position. We propose a dual-loop control method to realize(More)
