    A mathematical model has been derived that describes the pressure-flow relationship in the ventilatory system under conditions of constant lung volume. The parameters of the model include small airway resistance, large airway resistance, and lung elastic recoil. A collapsible airway segment is included to model compression of the airways during expiration. View full abstract»

    A closed-loop control scheme for the control of intra-aortic balloon pumping has been developed and tested in dog experiments. A performance index reflecting the general objectives of balloon-assist pumping is developed and a modified steepest ascent control algorithm is utilized for the selection of a proper operating point for the balloon during its pumping cycle. This paper attempts to indicate... View full abstract»

    A cardiac cineangiogram is an X-ray motion picture of the heart. Boundary detection is an essential task to compute valuable quantitative information such as the temporal volume change and the wall velocity. Previously, boundary detection methods treated frames independent of each other. Consecutive frames of a motion picture are, however, highly correlated and therefore this property can be explo...

  • A Comparative Study of Various Single-Plane Cineangiocardiographic Methods to Measure Left-Ventricular Volume

    Monoplane angiocardiographic methods are widely used to measure left-ventricular volumes (LVV's). Generally, the ellipsoid and Simpson's rule models are used to calculate LVV. Due to the assumed circular cross-sectional area of the left ventricle, both models have a fundamental error which theoretically prohibits the exact calculation of LVV. In this paper, a method to reduce this fundamental erro... View full abstract»

    Echocardiography is today well established and has gained widespread acceptance as a clinical routine method, especially for the diagnosis of mitral valve stenosis. Since heart structure movements are relatively fast, only information of limited medical value can be obtained from direct inspection of the A-scope display. Ideally, an apparatus for recording the movements of heart structures in the ... View full abstract»

    The dynamic changes in pressures, flow, and transcapillary fluid exchange which occur in the isolated dog hindlimb in response to a sudden increase in capillary hydrostatic pressure were simulated on a digital computer. The differential equation with time-varying parameters was set in the state-space form and the transient solution was found by means of the matrix exponential technique. The close ...

    The control functions, system motions, and other characteristics which are obtained from the mathematical synthesis of ``optimal'' bipedal locomotion gaits with respect to locomotion criteria (to be minimized) defined in the paper are considered. Results are presented for three mathematical biped models and several locomotion criteria (objective functions). Optimal walking trajectories and associa... View full abstract»

    A statistical technique is described which allows description of the statistical characteristics of nonstationary electroencephalograms (EEG's). The EEG is investigated in terms of its nonstationary power spectrum. The instantaneous power spectra of certain transition processes in the EEG (the evolution and blocking of the alpha wave) are calculated and described on the time-frequency plane.

    This machine uses the one-to-one correspondence between spelled-speech utterances and the printed alphabet symbols. Letter recognition was done by first extracting essential features from the information picked up by a photocell scanner and then matching these features with a stored set of data. In order to reduce the amount of memory required to generate letter sounds, redundant phonemes were eli... View full abstract»

    This paper reports the threshold 60-Hz alternating-current values required to induce ventricular fibrillation when the current is applied to electrodes at different sites on the surface of the bodies of rabbits, puppies, one monkey, dogs, goats, and ponies. It is shown that for a given body weight, the duration of exposure to current influences the fibrillation threshold; exposure times shorter th... View full abstract»

    A digital beat-to-beat and integrating cardiotachometer which calculates heart rate digitally in a simple manner has been constructed. The device needs no calibration and has an operating range from 1 to 999 beats/min with an accuracy of ±½ digit, and will calculate heart rate either on a beat-to-beat basis or averaged over 10, 20, or 50 beats.

    A device has been designed and constructed to cause stimulation of neural tissue by means of an induced electric field. Such a device is interesting because it allows a neural structure to be stimulated without requiring either the surgical exposure of the site of stimulation or requiring that current be passed from the outside to the inside of the living system. Tests have been conducted at stimu... View full abstract»
