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)
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)
