    Recently a few methods have been proposed in the literature for non-invasive cuff-less estimation of systolic and diastolic blood pressures. One of the most prominent methods is to use the Pulse Transit Time (PTT). Although it is proven that PTT has a strong correlation with the systolic and diastolic blood pressures, this relation is highly dependent to each individuals physiological properties. Therefore, it requires per person calibration for accurate and reliable blood pressure estimation from PTT, which is a big drawback. To alleviate this issue, in this paper, a novel method is proposed for accurate and reliable estimation of blood pressure that is calibration-free. This goal is... 

    Robust control of LVAD based on the sub-regional modeling of the heart

    Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD) have received renewed interest as a bridge-to-transplantation as well as a bridge-to-recovery device. Ironically, reports of malfunction and complications have hindered the growth of this device. In particular, the main concern is LVAD's susceptibility to excessive backlash and suction as a result of ows that are either too low or high, respectively. This study utilizes a well-established physiological model of the cardiovascular system as a reliable platform to study a proposed adaptive robust controller for a rotary motor based LVAD which overcomes such shortcomings. Proposed controller performance is evaluated by comparing simulated natural heart... 

    Utility of a nonlinear joint dynamical framework to model a pair of coupled cardiovascular signals

    , Article IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics ; Volume 17, Issue 4 , 2013 , Pages 881-890 ; 21682194 (ISSN) Sayadi, O ; Shamsollahi, M. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    We have recently proposed a correlated model to provide a Gaussian mixture representation of the cardiovascular signals, with promising results in identifying rhythm disturbances. The approach provides a transformation of the data into a set of integrable Gaussians distributed over time. Looking into the model from a new joint modeling perspective, it is capable of assembling a filtered estimation, and can be used to derive temporal information of the waveforms. In this paper, we present a step-by-step derivation of the joint model putting correlation assumptions together to conclude a minimal joint description for a pair of ECG-ABP signals. We then probe novel applications of this model,...
