  1. In vitro study of an intra-aortic VAD: Effect of reverse-rotating mode on ventricular recovery.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:274 (2015) PMID 26736253

    Cardiac 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...
  2. The platelet hammer: In vitro platelet activation under repetitive hypershear.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:262 (2015) PMID 26736250

    Mechanical 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...
  3. Live ECG readings using Google Glass in emergency situations.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:315 (2015) PMID 26736263

    Most 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...
  4. Modulation of platelet membrane function via exogenous lipid moiety exposure alters platelet responsiveness to shear.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:266 (2015) PMID 26736251

    Shear-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...
  5. Agonist-to-antagonist dependency during target-directed isometric elbow flexion and extension.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:250 (2015) PMID 26736247

    Muscle 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...
  6. Structured prediction for differentiating between normal rhythms, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation in the ECG.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:310 (2015) PMID 26736262

    Recent 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...
  7. Theoretical analysis of phantom rotations in BSD-DTI.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:410 (2015) PMID 26736286

    A 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...
  8. Novel culturing platform for brain slices and neuronal cells.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:346 (2015) PMID 26736270

    In 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...
  9. Cardiac fibrillation risks with TASER conducted electrical weapons.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:323 (2015) PMID 26736265

    The 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...
  10. Transfer representation learning for medical image analysis.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2015:711 (2015) PMID 26736361

    There 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...
