Detecting lower limb peripheral vascular occlusive disease (PVOD) early is important for patients to prevent disabling claudication, ischaemic rest pain and gangrene. According to previous research, the pulse timing and shape distortion characteristics of photoplethysmography (PPG) signals tend to increase with disease severity and calibrated amplitude(More)
Hemodialysis (HD) is a clinical treatment that requires the puncturing of the body surface. However, needle dislodgement can cause a high risk of blood leakage and can be fatal to patients. Previous studies proposed several devices for blood leakage detection using optical or electrical techniques. Nonetheless, these methods used single-point detection and(More)
The residual stenosis estimation of an arteriovenous shunt is a valuable for evaluating outcomes of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) treatment and surgical revision. This paper proposes a dual-channel phonoangiography (PCG) with fractional-order features to estimate the residual of stenosis estimation of arteriovenous shunt. The auscultation(More)
This study proposes virtual-reality (VR) simulator system for double interventional cardiac catheterization (ICC) using fractional-order vascular access tracker and haptic force producer. An endoscope or a catheter for diagnosis and surgery of cardiovascular disease has been commonly used in minimally invasive surgery. It needs specific skills and(More)
