Non-contact, non-invasive monitoring of hemodynamic parameters has long been deemed to be important to medical monitoring in a variety of environments. Radio Frequency Impedance Interrogation (RFII) measures hemodynamic function via resonance frequency coupling to a hydrophilic protein molecule. We examined the use of RFII for hemodynamic monitoring of(More)
The purpose of this work is to determine the sensitivity of the estimated time of peaks and maximum slopes, commonly used in activation time computations, to the instant at which sampling is initiated. Based on complex and quickly changing waveforms, 471 monopolar (MP) and bipolar (BP) epicardial responses in man were selected. These were decimated from 10(More)
Radio Frequency Impedance Interrogation (RFII) measures hemodynamic function via resonance frequency coupling to a hydrophilic protein molecule. The RFII device generates a cardiosynchronous waveform from the identification of blood movement in the time, frequency, and voltage domains. This paper examines RFII signals with the end goal of allowing(More)
In this paper we explore how a Radio Frequency Impedance Interrogation (RFII) signal may be used as a biometric feature. This could allow the identification of subjects in operational and potentially hostile environments. Features extracted from the continuous and discrete wavelet decompositions of the signal are investigated for biometric identification.(More)
The cardiosynchronous signal obtained through Radio Frequency Impedance Interrogation (RFII) is a non-invasive method for monitoring hemodynamics with potential applications in combat triage and biometric identification. The RFII signal is periodic in nature dominated by the heart beat cycle. The first step in both of these applications is to segment the(More)
