  1. 1. Traces of Repolarization Inhomogeneity in the ECG

    Author : Milos Kesek; Anders Englund; Bertil Lindahl; Markku Mäkijärvi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Internal medicine; cardiology; repolarization; ECG; QT dispersion; nondipolar components; T-wave; principal component analysis; repolarization inhomogeneity; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Repolarization inhomogeneity is arrhythmogenic. QT dispersion (QTd) is an easily accessible ECG-variable, related to the repolarization and shown to carry prognostic information. It was originally thought to reflect repolarization inhomogeneity. Lately, arguments have been risen against this hypothesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quality Control in ECG-based Atrial Fibrillation Screening

    Author : Hesam Halvaei; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ECG; Signal Quality; Atrial fibrillation screening;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises an introductory chapter and four papers related to quality control in ECG-based atrial fibrillation (AF) screening. Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an irregular rhythm and constitutes a major risk factor for stroke. READ MORE

  3. 3. Signal Characterization of Atrial Arrhythmias using the Surface ECG

    Author : Martin Stridh; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; Signal processing; Atrial fibrillation; Atrial arrhythmias; Frequency estimation; Time-frequency analysis; QRST cancellation; ECG;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis is comprised of five parts which deal with different signal processing problems in ECG-based characterization of atrial arrhythmias. Such characterization requires that the ventricular activity has first been cancelled in the ECG. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular aspects on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease : with focus on ischemic ECG abnormalities, QT prolongation and arterial stiffness

    Author : Ulf Nilsson; Anne Lindberg; Anders Blomberg; Bengt Johansson; Christine Brulin; Per Bakke; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; COPD; ischemic heart disease; cardiovascular disease; ECG; spirometry; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) is an under-diagnosed disease with a prevalence of approximately 10%, highly dependent on age and smoking habits. Comorbidities are common in COPD and of these, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Approaches to ECG-Based Modeling and Characterization of Atrial Fibrillation

    Author : Frida Sandberg; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HMM; ECG; Biomedical Signal Processing; Time-Frequency Analysis; Atrial Fibrillation; Sample Entropy; AV modeling;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with signal processing algorithms for analysis of the electrocardiogram (ECG) during atrial fibrillation (AF). Such analysis can be used for diagnosing patients, and for monitoring and predicting their response to various treatment. READ MORE
