In this paper, we address the problem of detecting the presence of a myocardial scar from the standard electrocardiogram (ECG)/vectorcardiogram (VCG) recordings, giving effort to develop a screening system for the early detection of the scar in the point-of-care. Based on the pathophysiological implications of scarred myocardium, which results in disordered(More)
Wireless Sensors Networks (WSNs) emphasize the necessity of accurate event detection in realistic environments, while health monitoring comprise one of their most pronounced applications. Although respective fuzzy logic systems have been proposed based on vital and environmental sensors, there is a significant lack of investigation on the reliability of(More)
This paper addresses the possibility of detecting presence of scar tissue in the myocardium through the investigation of vectorcardiogram (VCG) characteristics. Scarred myocardium is the result of myocardial infarction (MI) due to ischemia and creates a substrate for the manifestation of fatal arrhythmias. Our efforts are focused on the development of a(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have limited power capabilities, whereas they serve applications which usually require specific packets, i.e. High Priority Packets (HPP), to be delivered before a deadline. Hence, it is essential to reduce the energy consumption and to have real-time behavior. To achieve this goal we propose a hybrid technique which explores(More)
