    This article provides an overview and discussion of different available electrocardiographic approaches that my prove useful in the clinical management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). At the atrial level, characterization of fibrillation waves during AF using spectral analysis techniques or using P-wave signal averaging during (restored) sinus rhythm has been successfully applied in ord...

    The surface electrocardiogram (ECG) is a convenient, cost effective, and noninvasive tool for the study of atrial fibrillation (AF). It can be used to examine the hypothesized mechanisms of AF as well as to quantify and assess the effect of electrophysiological remodeling and the effectiveness of treatment on different types of AF. Time domain methods can be used to characterize the signal in the ... View full abstract»

    Analysis of atrial tachyarrhythmias requires that an atrial signal has first been extracted from the electrocardiogram (ECG), resulting in the so-called residual ECG. This article introduces a novel method for atrial rhythm analysis that condenses different signal parameters into three rhythm features, reflecting signal structure, frequency regularity, and waveform type. A three-stage method for a... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a method for the automated processing of atrial fibrillation (AF) electrograms for the diagnosis of the electropathological substrate of AF and to monitor the effects of ablation procedures and anti-arrhythmic drug treatment on the characteristics of AF. Template matching is a well-known signal processing technique that has been proven useful in various other applications like ... View full abstract»

    The prevalence of cardiovascular diseases such as atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATa) has become prevalent worldwide. A discussion on the detection, monitoring, termination, and prevention of ATa is presented. Rhythm control is defined as maintenance of sinus rhythm. One measure of rhythm control is the percent of time spent in atrial tachyarrhythmias, commonly referred to as ATa burden. Rhythm control ... View full abstract»

    In this article, three methods for the analysis of the relationships among atrial electrical activities in different sites recorded during sinus rhythms (SR) and atrial fibrillation (AF) will be presented and discussed. The properties of pairs of atrial signals (ASs) will be characterized through a linear parameter obtained from the estimation of the cross-correlation (CC) function, using a nonlin...

    This article presents two signal processing techniques for the analysis of intracardial electrograins in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The first, number of occurrences (NO), is aimed at quantifying the level of organization of the signal. The second, index of synchronization (IS), quantifies the degree of synchrony of electrograms from adjacent atrial sites. The proposed indexes are appl... View full abstract»

    The research discussed in this article is motivated by the search for an optimal classification of the different types of atrial fibrillation (AF) on the basis of recorded atrial signals. This would facilitate the selection of an optimal therapy. This article focuses on the biophysical models of the genesis of ECG waveforms during AF. The model of the electric activity of the atria was found to ha... View full abstract»

    The design project is the most important component of the senior capstone design course. To best prepare students for careers in biomedical engineering, they should be given the opportunity to work on projects with teams that reflect the team environment in an industrial setting. Team composition is important in providing as much of a multidisciplinary team experience as possible. The type of proj... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the experiments conducted by physicist and physician Arsenne d'Arsonval on the effect of sinusoidal ac on the body, well before the era of electronics. d'Arsonval's first experiments were on the effect of ac on muscle contraction using frog muscle. He contrived a most ingenious device, which displayed the voltage curve and the force of muscle contraction on a smoked-drum kymog... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the ethical and political issues that stem cell research faces. Stem cell research holds great promise for treating serious diseases but does so by using materials from the very beginning of life. There is a division among different sects of society as some see a important ethical principle being threatened, while others see scientific progress being threatened by religious be...
