    Introducing a distributed model of the heart

    , Article Proceedings of the IEEE RAS and EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics, 24 June 2012 through 27 June 2012 ; June , 2012 , Pages 419-424 ; 21551774 (ISSN) ; 9781457711992 (ISBN) Ravanshadi, S ; Jahed, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Conventional models of cardiovascular system (CV) frequently lack required detail. Once utilized to study the heart function, these models focus primarily on the overall relationship between pressure, flow and volume. This study proposes a localized and regional model of the CV system. It utilizes non-invasive blood flow and pressure seed data and temporal cardiac muscle regional activation to predict the operation of the heart. Proposed localized analysis considers specific regions of the heart, namely base, mid and apex sections of the left ventricle. This modular system is based on a hydraulic electric analogy model, estimating desired parameters, namely resistance (R), compliance (C),... 

    An improved algorithm for heart Rate tracking during physical exercise using simultaneous wrist-type photoplethysmographic (PPG) and acceleration signals

    , Article 2016 23rd Iranian Conference on Biomedical Engineering and 2016 1st International Iranian Conference on Biomedical Engineering, ICBME 2016, 23 November 2016 through 25 November 2016 ; 2017 , Pages 146-149 ; 9781509034529 (ISBN) Boloursaz Mashhadi, M ; Essalat, M ; Ahmadi, M ; Marvasti, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    Causal Heart Rate (HR) monitoring using photoplethysmographic (PPG) signals recorded from wrist during physical exercise is a challenging task because the PPG signals in this scenario are highly contaminated by artifacts caused by hand movements of the subject. This paper proposes a novel algorithm for this problem, which consists of two main blocks of Noise Suppression and Peak Selection. The Noise Suppression block removes Motion Artifacts (MAs) from the PPG signals utilizing simultaneously recorded 3D acceleration data. The Peak Selection block applies some decision mechanisms to correctly select the spectral peak corresponding to HR in PPG spectra. Experimental results on benchmark...
