As part of the School of Science and Technology's Joint Seminar Programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing Informatics Research Centres , Dr Delaram Jarchi, University of Oxford presents: Computing Seminar: Estimation of respiratory rate from acceleration signals for monitoring ICU patients.

Abstract:

Continuous monitoring of physiological changes of patients inside the ICU or following ICU discharge is a crucial step to transform the current healthcare systems. To identify deteriorating patients in the hospitals and avoid patient death, detecting changes in vital signs is significantly important. One important vital sign that has recently attracted many research studies is the respiratory rate (RR). Validation of this vital sign obtained from wearable sensors in the clinical environment during continuous monitoring over few hours/days is an extremely challenging task. In this talk we look into methods for estimation of RR from patients in the hospital ward following ICU discharge using three different simultaneous recordings including photoplethysmography (PPG), electroencephalography (ECG) and accelerometer signals with a focus on accelerometry based estimation of RR.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Richard Cant.

All welcome.
