International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:274 (2015) PMID 26736253Cardiac recovery has been observed in end-stage heart failure patients with mechanical circulatory support. An intra-aortic ventricular assist device (IntraVAD) is a novel rotary blood pump designed to operate in the ascending aorta behind the aortic valve, working in series with the compromised...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:262 (2015) PMID 26736250Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices, such as ventricular assist devices and the total artificial heart, have emerged as a vital therapy for advanced and end-stage heart failure. However, MCS patients face life-long antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy to minimize thrombotic complicati...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:315 (2015) PMID 26736263Most sudden cardiac problems require rapid treatment to preserve life. In this regard, electrocardiograms (ECG) shown on vital parameter monitoring systems help medical staff to detect problems. In some situations, such monitoring systems may display information in a less than convenient way for...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:266 (2015) PMID 26736251Shear-induced platelet activation may cause life-threatening thrombosis, particularly in patients with mechanical support devices or coronary atherosclerosis. The majority of present anti-platelet agents target or interfere with biochemical, rather than physical mechanisms of platelet activation...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:250 (2015) PMID 26736247Muscle coordination during isometric elbow contraction was investigated in this study in order to understand the agonist-to-antagonist dependency. 15 healthy subjects were recruited and instructed to perform target-directed isometric elbow flexion and extension. Electromyography (EMG) signals fr...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:310 (2015) PMID 26736262Recent studies have been performed on feature selection for diagnostics between non-ventricular rhythms and ventricular arrhythmias, or between non-ventricular fibrillation and ventricular fibrillation. However they did not assess classification directly between non-ventricular rhythms, ventricu...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:410 (2015) PMID 26736286A novel method of improving accuracy of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), called BSD-DTI (B-spatial distribution in DTI), has been recently proposed. Determination of the b matrix components using an anisotropic phantom, and derivation of the spatial distribution are of the essence in this approac...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:346 (2015) PMID 26736270In this paper we demonstrate a novel culturing system for brain slices and neuronal cells, which can control the concentration of nutrients and the waste removal from the culture by adjusting the fluid flow within the device. The entire system can be placed in an incubator. The system has been t...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:323 (2015) PMID 26736265The TASER(®) conducted electrical weapon (CEW) delivers electrical pulses that can temporarily incapacitate subjects. We analyzed the cardiac fibrillation risk with TASER CEWs. Our risk model accounted for realistic body mass index distributions, used a new model of effects of partial or oblique...
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:711 (2015) PMID 26736361There are two major challenges to overcome when developing a classifier to perform automatic disease diagnosis. First, the amount of labeled medical data is typically very limited, and a classifier cannot be effectively trained to attain high disease-detection accuracy. Second, medical domain kn...
