  1. 1. Towards Heart Rate Variability Tools in P-Health : Pervasive, Preventive, Predictive and Personalized

    Author : Farhad Abtahi; Kaj Lindecrantz; Birgitta Janerot Sjöberg; Fernando Seoane; Annette Bruchfeld; Metin Akay; KTH; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Heart Rate Variability; Cholinergic Anti-inflammatory Pathway; Autonomic Nervous System; Vagal activity; Biofeedback; Gamification; Serious Gaming; Inflammatory Markers; Raspberry PI; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Heart Rate Variability;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability (HRV) has received much attention lately. It has been shown that HRV can be used to monitor the autonomic nervous system and to detect autonomic dysfunction, especially vagal dysfunction. Reduced HRV is associated with several diseases and has also been suggested as a predictor of poor outcomes and sudden cardiac death. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electrical Bioimpedance Cerebral Monitoring: Fundamental Steps towards Clinical Application

    Author : Fernando Seoane Martinez; Fernando Seoane Martínez; Fernando Seoane; Chalmers University of Technology; []

    Abstract : Neurologically related injuries cause a similar number of deaths as cancer, and brain damage is the second commonest cause of death in the world and probably the leading cause of permanent disability. The devastating effects of most cases of brain damage could be avoided if it were detected and medical treatment initiated in time. READ MORE
