    Controlling Atrial fibrillation using Cohen's model

    , Article 2011 18th Iranian Conference of Biomedical Engineering, ICBME 2011, 14 December 2011 through 16 December 2011 ; December , 2011 , Pages 60-63 ; 9781467310055 (ISBN) Aghajari, S ; Bahrami, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    Drug administration using infusion pumps can find application in treating patients with arrhythmias. These pumps can obviate the need to use drugs several times a day and automatically adapt the dosage to patient situation. Considering the importance of administration of right dosage, a perfect-controlled pump is needed to approach this goal. This paper focuses on controlling Atrial fibrillation (AF) arrhythmia. The abnormal heart rhythm that affects RR interval sequence and there have been some attempts to model these effects. One of these models is proposed by Cohen and colleges. Searching through the variables of this model, selecting the potential control variable (the one that its... 

    Multichannel electrocardiogram decomposition using periodic component analysis

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering ; Volume 55, Issue 8 , August , 2008 , Pages 1935-1940 ; 00189294 (ISSN) Sameni, R ; Jutten, C ; Shamsollahi, M. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this letter, we propose the application of the generalized eigenvalue decomposition for the decomposition of multichannel electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings. The proposed method uses a modified version of a previously presented measure of periodicity and a phase-wrapping of the RR-interval, for extracting the "most periodic" linear mixtures of a recorded dataset. It is shown that the method is an improved extension of conventional source separation techniques, specifically customized for ECG signals. The method is therefore of special interest for the decomposition and compression of multichannel ECG, and for the removal of maternal ECG artifacts from fetal ECG recordings. © 2006 IEEE  

    Spatiotemporal registration and fusion of transthoracic echocardiography and volumetric coronary artery tree

    , Article International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery ; Volume 16, Issue 9 , 2021 , Pages 1493-1505 ; 18616410 (ISSN) Ghodsizad, T ; Behnam, H ; Fatemizadeh, E ; Faghihi Langroudi, T ; Bayat, F ; Sharif University of Technology

    Purpose: Cardiac multimodal image fusion can offer an image with various types of information in a single image. Many coronary stenosis, which are anatomically clear, are not functionally significant. The treatment of such kind of stenosis can cause irreversible effects on the patient. Thus, choosing the best treatment planning depend on anatomical and functional information is very beneficial. Methods: An algorithm for the fusion of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) as an anatomical and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) as a functional modality is presented. CCTA and TTE are temporally registered using manifold learning. A pattern search optimization algorithm, using...

    Objective: A novel electrocardiogram (ECG) classification algorithm is proposed for continuous cardiac monitoring on wearable devices with limited processing capacity. Methods: The proposed solution employs a novel architecture consisting of wavelet transform and multiple long short-term memory (LSTM) recurrent neural networks (see Fig. 1). Results: Experimental evaluations show superior ECG classification performance compared to previous works. Measurements on different hardware platforms show the proposed algorithm meets timing requirements for continuous and real-time execution on wearable devices. Conclusion: In contrast to many compute-intensive deep-learning based approaches, the...
