    End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD) are at high risk of arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death as a result of blood potassium con-centration ([K+]) changes.The aim of this study ...
  • Entropy analysis of acoustic signals recorded with a smartphone for detecting apneas and hypopneas: A comparison with a commercial system for home sleep apnea diagnosis 

    Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Ferrer Lluís, Ignasi; Jané Campos, Raimon; Montserrat Canal, Josep Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent disease, but most patients remain undiagnosed and untreated. Here we propose analyzing smartphone audio signals for screening OSA patients at home. Our objectives were to: (1) ...

  • A 36 µW 1.1 mm2 reconfigurable analog front-end for cardiovascular and respiratory signals recording 

    Xu, Jiawei; Konijnenburg, Mario; Ha, Hyunsoo; van Wegberg, Roland; Song, Shuang; Blanco Almazán, María Dolores; Van Hoof, Chris; Van Helleputte, Nick (2018-04-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a 1.2 V 36 µW reconfigurable analog front-end (R-AFE) as a general-purpose low-cost IC for multiple-mode biomedical signals acquisition. The R-AFE efficiently reuses a reconfigurable preamplifier, a ...
  • Analysis of time delay between bioimpedance and respiratory volume signals under inspiratory loaded breathing
