Ventilator weaning is the process of discontinuing mechanical ventilators from patients with respiratory failure. This study designed a clinical decision support system (CDSS) using support vector machine (SVM) to predict if a patient can be weaned from mechanical ventilator successfully. A filter method based on logistic regression analysis (LRA) and a(More)
In Taiwan, the number of the patients needing dialysis increases rapidly in recent years. Because there is risk in every hemodialysis session, monitoring physiological status, such as blood pressure measurement every 30 min to 1 h is needed during about 4 h hemodialysis process. Therefore, an assisted measurement on blood pressure is needful in dialysis(More)
Baroreflex sensitivity is recognized for its prognostic relevance to cardio-vascular and cerebro-vascular risks. However, little is known about the long-term outcome of baroreflex function in patients with carotid stenosis undergoing carotid stenting. Heart rate variability and cardio-vascular autonomic function, including baroreflex sensitivity, were(More)
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)
