Multiscale Poincare Plots

Poincaré delay maps are widely used in the analysis of cardiac interbeat interval (RR) dynamics. To facilitate visualization of the structure of these complex time series, we introduced a methodology called multiscale Poincaré (MSP) ...

Combined measurement of ECG, Breathing and Seismocardiograms

This database contains the combined measurement of ECG, breathing and seismocardiogram from 20 healthy volunteers.

The purpose of the database was twofold:

  1. To check if slight errors in the detection of the RR time series when measuring it...
