    Computerized analysis of lung sounds can play a very important role in management of patients with a variety of medical conditions, particularly those who are seriously ill. While single-channel devices can play an important role in making auscultation more objective, multi-channel instruments greatly improve the efficiency of data collection. This has a particular advantage in the rapid assessmen... View full abstract»

    This study reviews the adaptive methods of canceling heart sounds from lung sounds that have been investigated over approximately 20 years. Filtering techniques are categorized as linear adaptive filters and filters employing time-frequency based methods. Several filtering schemes are outlined within these two categories. Methods of heart sound localization are indicated in conjunction with the st... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel denoising tool that enhances explosive lung sounds (ELS), such as crackles and squawks (SQs), so they can more accurately and reliably be interpreted by the physicians, has been presented. This approach combines empirical mode decomposition (EMD) with fractal dimension (FD) analysis, highlighting, simultaneously, the advantageous complementarities drawn from such bridging, t...

    In this article, the application of a newly developed signal analysis technique, the empirical mode decomposition (EMD) to detect fine and coarse crackles has been presented. The qualitative evaluation by inspecting the results of simulated and real cases demonstrates that EMD application is promising, especially for low SNR and for isolated or overlapped fine crackles. For coarse crackles, the ta... View full abstract»

    This article describes the analysis of a new respiratory system model that could have properties favorable for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment. First, we compare the performance of four well-known models to the performance of this new model by estimating their parameters and calculating the corresponding estimation errors. Next, this proposed extended RIC model's parameter estimates fo... View full abstract»

    Flow estimation from respiratory sounds, in particular tracheal sounds, has drawn much attention in recent years. This article briefly discusses previous studies that have been proposed for flow estimation. Recently, a method based on entropy was shown to have a superior performance compared to the other methods. The robustness of this entropy-based model in terms of its sensitivity to the changes...

    Pulsatile pressure in arteries produces mechanical oscillations. High-frequency vibrations tend to produce mechanical structure injures. Vascular smooth muscle (VSM) could react modulating viscoelasticity to protect the arterial wall, filtering the highest harmonics component present in the large and rapid slope of blood pressure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the filtering performance exe... View full abstract»

    We have presented here a method of characterizing the expected secondary structure or structures from a Boltzmann-weighted ensemble of such structures. In several applications of this method, the results provided structural insight not attainable by the use of free energy minimization methods. Previous approaches to characterizing the Boltzmann ensemble of structures have included the base-pairing... View full abstract»

    Information technologies (IT) have become a powerful decisive force in the administration and quality of care. It is important to highlight that this one area throws an imposing shadow not only over the U.S. healthcare system and public health but over national and international security as well. That vastly mysterious area is interoperability View full abstract»
