    A thermal-dilution technique for the continuous measurement of cardiac output has been developed. It employs pulmonary-artery sensing of low-level periodic thermal signals generated in the right ventricle of the heart. A resistive element in a modified Swan Ganz®catheter is energized with a periodic electrical waveform. The resulting thermal signal is diluted by blood flow and attenuated by mixin...

    After developing, evaluating, and utilizing several generations of instrumented and coded neurologic function tests, we have designed a prototype minicomputer-based system that integrates a broad battery of tests into a clinically attractive console. The tests can be administered by a trained technician. Scoring, data analysis, storage, and retrieval are automated, providing the clinician with res... View full abstract»

    We are describing a method for rapid spectroscopic measurement of phototransients obtained in a flash photolysis apparatus. A linear photodiode array is employed as a detector to sense changes in light absorption across the visible spectrum. A microcomputer handles sampling, analysis, and plotting the data, and controls a xenon flash photolysis unit. This approach provides simultaneous wavelength ... View full abstract»

    We describe an improved version of the double magnetic induction method for measuring eye movement, proposed by Reulen and Bakker. The idea behind the double magnetic method is to detect eye position indirectly by determining the strength of the induced secondary magnetic field of a short-circuited coil on the subject's eye caused by a primary magnetic field. A signal related to eye position is ob... View full abstract»

  • Power Spectrum Density Analysis of Electrical Noise in Glass Microelectrodes

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):428 - 434

    Experiments were performed on glass microelectrodes in order to obtain quantitative estimates of the power spectrum density of their current and voltage noises. The effects of current injection (under voltage or current clamp), and ion concentration gradients, were studied separately or concurrently. It was observed that the spectral distribution of the fluctuations is of the 1/ƒa View full abstract»

    Location, orientation, and magnitude of a dipole in spherical conducting media are estimated by using a nomograph. No iterative numerical process on a computer is necessary for each dipole estimation. The estimation method was applied to computer generated dipoles. The difference between true and estimated locations was within 0.8 percent of the sphere radius, and the difference between true and e... View full abstract»

    The use of stationary models for myoelectric signals (MES's) is sometimes of questionable validity. Also, muscle forces are not always proportional to the concomitant values of the MES variance. View full abstract»
