246 – R-R Interval Processing with the BIOPAC HRV Algorithm

periodogram for time-domain analysisAcqKnowledge calculates heart rate variability (HRV) using the Welch Periodogram and least squares de-trending methods.

To properly select the parameter values needed for the calculation of the Power Spectral Density, which is the “work-horse” tool for Heart Rate Variability analysis, a brief tutorial is presented, including an R-R Interval Processing Approach.

The Welch Periodogram is a method by which a large time-sampled waveform can be frequency-transformed by partitioning the data into shorter segments, transforming each segment, then, averaging the results over all the segments to create a composite frequency space waveform.

ERS Smart Amplifier

The ERS Evoked Response Smart Amplifier is an extremely low noise differential amplifier that accurately amplifies very small potentials, such as those associated with stimulus/response, startle response, ABR auditory brainstem response, somatosensory evoked response, signal-averaged recordings, and nerve conduction velocity recordings. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by […]
