Comparison between Electrocardiographic and Earlobe Pulse Photoplethysmographic Detection for Evaluating Heart Rate Variability in Healthy Subjects in Short and Long Term Recordings

PMCID: 5877367
PMID: 29533990
DOI: 10.3390/s18030844

[…] ith all data points clustered together. Corrupted RR signals will result in PoincarĂ© maps with scattered data points [].RR data from segments in short-term acquisitions were processed using PhysioNet HRV Toolkit routines. Artifact removal by HRV Toolkit is described in []. First, RR intervals that are less than 0.4 s or more than 2.0 s are excluded. Next, using a window of 41 intervals (20 interva […]


Cardiac parasympathetic index identifies subjects with adult obstructive sleep apnea: A simultaneous polysomnographic heart rate variability study

PLoS One
PMCID: 5843243
PMID: 29518111
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193879

[…] the right clavicle), and the positive electrode on the left side of the chest, below the pectoral muscle on the left anterior axillary line [].The RR signal (tachogram) was processed using PhysioNet HRV Toolkit base functions, integrated in Matlab®. Time series acquisition was then divided into 10-minute epochs, with an overlapping of 5 minutes, for frequency analysis. Each epoch was processed wi […]


Cardiovascular Consequences of Repetitive Arousals over the Entire Sleep Duration

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 5605864
PMID: 29018813
DOI: 10.1155/2017/4213861

[…] A five-minute ECG segment with minimal noise interference was selected from the data recorded over the 10-minute supine rest. The data was exported and analyzed with the Kubios HRV toolkit (Kubios HRV, version 2.1, Biosignal Analysis and Medical Imaging Group, Kuopio, Finland). R waves were automatically detected and reviewed manually. The HRV variables were calculated via f […]


HRVanalysis: A Free Software for Analyzing Cardiac Autonomic Activity

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5118625
PMID: 27920726
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2016.00557

[…] e such as Kubios (Tarvainen et al., ), Kardia (Perakakis et al., ), ARTiiFACT (Kaufmann et al., ), POLYAN (Maestri and Pinna, ), RHRV (Rodriguez-Linares et al., ), ECGLab (Carvalho et al., ), and the HRV Toolkit developed by the PhysioNet Project (Goldberger et al., ), each with its own specificity. Drawing on a large panel of users, we developed HRVanalysis (version 1.0), a software that includes […]


A multi layer monitoring system for clinical management of Congestive Heart Failure

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 4705509
PMID: 26391638
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6947-15-S3-S5

[…] HRV parameters computed using the PhysioNet HRV Toolkit on 15 healthy and 15 CHF patients are reported in Table . Upon statistical comparison, we found that SDNN, RMSSD and pNN20 were strongly different (p < 0.0001) amongst CHF and healthy grou […]


Heart rate variability and target organ damage in hypertensive patients

PMCID: 3536621
PMID: 23153340
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2261-12-105

[…] tection and beat classification []. Standard long-term HRV analysis on nominal 24-h recordings according to International Guidelines was performed []. The HRV analysis was performed using PhysioNet's HRV Toolkit []. We chose this toolkit as it is an open source and a rigorously validated package. All the computed basic time- and frequency-domain HRV measures were widely used in the literature []. […]
