Recurrent Neural Networks for Multivariate Time Series with Missing Values

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5904216
PMID: 29666385
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24271-9

[…] methods to fill in the missing values. For concatenation method (Simple) of the non-RNN methods, we concatenate the masking vector along with the measurements of the regularly sampled time series. On PhysioNet dataset we sample the time series on an hourly basis and propagate measurements forward (or backward) in time to fill gaps, and on MIMIC-III dataset we consider two hourly samples (in the fi […]


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

[…] ce plots with all data points clustered together. Corrupted RR signals will result in Poincaré 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 ( […]


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

[…] just below 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 pr […]


Spectro Temporal Electrocardiogram Analysis for Noise Robust Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability Measurement

PMCID: 5731323
PMID: 29255653
DOI: 10.1109/JTEHM.2017.2767603

[…] Synthetic ECG signals were generated using the ‘ecgsyn’ function in Matlab™ available in Physionet . The function uses a dynamic model to generate the ECG waveform described in and allows configuring several parameters such as mean heart rate, sampling frequency, standard deviation of th […]


Modeling Uncertainties in EEG Microstates: Analysis of Real and Imagined Motor Movements Using Probabilistic Clustering Driven Training of Probabilistic Neural Networks

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5671986
PMID: 29163110
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00534

[…] We used motor imagery data from PhysioNet, contributed by the Schalk lab (Goldberger et al., ; Schalk et al., ) that is available for public use. It is fully anonymized data available to all researchers for free use under the ODC Pu […]


ECG signal performance de noising assessment based on threshold tuning of dual tree wavelet transform

Biomed Eng Online
PMCID: 5297224
PMID: 28173806
DOI: 10.1186/s12938-017-0315-1

[…] The datasets generated during and/or analysed during the current study are available in:[MIT-BIH Arrhythmia Database (mitdb)], [].[MIT-BIH Noise Stress Test Database (nstdb)], [].[ecgsyn], []. […]
