    Obstructive Sleep Apnea severity is commonly determined after a sleep polysomnographic study by the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI). This index does not contain information about the duration of events, and weights apneas and ...
  • Neural offset time evaluation in surface respiratory signals during controlled respiration 

    Estrada Petrocelli, Luis Carlos; Sarlabous, Leonardo; Lozano García, Manuel; Jané Campos, Raimon; Torres Cebrián, Abel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture

    The electrical activity of the diaphragm measured by surface electromyography (sEMGdi) provides indirect information on neural respiratory drive. Moreover, it allows evaluating the ventilatory pattern from the onset and ...
  • Analysis of tracheal and pulmonary continuous adventitious respiratory sounds in asthma 

    Lozano García, Manuel; M. Davidson, Clare; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Continuous adventitious sounds (CAS) are commonly observed in obstructive pulmonary diseases and are of great clinical interest. However, their evaluation is generally subjective. We have previously developed an automatic ...
  • Sleep stage influence on the autonomic modulation of sleep apnea syndrome 

    Calvo González, Mireia; Jané Campos, Raimon (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Hypoxia induced by obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) leads to the deregulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), resulting in an abnormally increased sympathetic activity. Since ANS modulation varies throughout the night, ...
  • Non-linear HRV analysis to quantify the effects of intermittent hypoxia using an OSA rat model 

    Romero, Daniel; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a non-linear HRV analysis was performed to assess fragmentation signatures observed in heartbeat time series after intermittent hypoxia (IH). Three markers quantifying short-term fragmentation levels, PIP, ...
  • Analysis of time delay between bioimpedance and respiratory volume signals under inspiratory loaded breathing 

    Blanco Almazán, María Dolores; Groenendaal, Willemijn; Catthoor, Francky; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Bioimpedance is known for its linear relation with volume during normal breathing. For that reason, bioimpedance can be used as a noninvasive and comfortable technique for measuring respiration. The goal of this study is ...
  • Class imbalance impact on the prediction of complications during home hospitalization: a comparative study. 

    Calvo González, Mireia; Cano, Isaac; Henández, Carmen; Ribas, Vicent; Miralles, Felip; Roca, Josep; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Home hospitalization (HH) is presented as a healthcare alternative capable of providing high standards of care when patients no longer need hospital facilities. Although HH seems to lower healthcare costs by shortening ...
  • Relationship between heart rate excursion and apnea duration in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea 

    Solà Soler, Jordi; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz; Jané Campos, Raimon; Fiz Fernández, José Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference lecture

    Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder with a high prevalence in the general population. It is a risk factor for many cardiovascular diseases, and an independent risk factor for cerebrovascular diseases such as ...
  • Onset detection to study muscle activity in reaching and grasping movements in rats 

    Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Rodríguez Cañón, María; García Alías, Guillermo; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    EMG signals reflect the neuromuscular activation patterns related to the execution of a certain movement or task. In this work, we focus on reaching and grasping (R&G) movements in rats. Our objective is to develop an ...
  • Automatic silence events detector from smartphone audio signals: a pilot mHealth system for sleep apnea monitoring at home 

    Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Ferrer Lluís, Ignasi; Montserrat, Josep Maria; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent disease, but most patients remain undiagnosed and untreated. Recently, mHealth tools are being proposed to screen OSA patients at home. In this work, we analyzed full-night audio ...
  • Automatic event detector from smartphone accelerometry: Pilot mHealth study for obstructive sleep apnea monitoring at home 

    Ferrer Lluís, Ignasi; Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Montserrat Canal, Josep Maria; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder with a low diagnosis ratio, leaving many patients undiagnosed and untreated. In the last decades, accelerometry has been found to be a feasible solution to obtain respiratory ...
  • Characterization and classification of patients with different levels of cardiac death risk by using Poincaré plot analysis 

    Rodríguez Benítez, Javier; Voss, Andreas; Caminal Magrans, Pere; Bayés Genis, Antoni; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz (2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Cardiac death risk is still a big problem by an important part of the population, especially in elderly patients. In this study, we propose to characterize and analyze the cardiovascular and cardiorespiratory systems using ...
