A significant methodological concern in impedance cardiography is related to the impact of movement artifacts on recorded data. Ensemble averaging methods provide a strategy to remove these artifacts. Wearable and ubiquitous technology for physiological recording will likely be required to make use of these types of signal averaging techniques.
The BioNomadix wireless physiology system can be used to perform real-time, beat-by-beat and ensemble averaged measurements related to cardiovascular reactivity, including Heart Rate (bpm), Left Ventricular Ejection Time (B-X ms), Pre-ejection Period (Q-B ms), Electromechanical Systole (Q-X ms), Stroke Volume (ml) and Cardiac Output (l/min).
This application note explains the required setup and provides data samples.
ICG: Impedance Cardiography/Cardiac Output - Record cardiac output, thoracic impedance changes, or any kind of bioimpedance signal. Use AcqKnowledge for a fully automated ICG analysis and dZ/dt waveform classifier.
The Ventilator Validation Kit supports new prototype development, existing design validation for production testing, mobile field testing and verification, and other uses where accurate pressure and flow measurements are critical. The Ventilator Validation Kit provides ventilator manufacturers and prototype developers with a complete solution for validating new medical/hospital-grade ventilator products intended for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes […]
Comparing Diaphragm Tissue Between Healthy and Ill Patients The human diaphragm is one of the primary muscles used in respiration, contracting and expanding to control breathing. To measure how much diaphragms move for critically ill patients (in an Intensive Care Unit) compared to diaphragms in a healthy subject, patients at “Papageorgiou” General Hospital in Thessaloniki, […]
