plt - Software for 2D Plots

plt is a non-interactive plotting utility originally written for Unix by Paul Albrecht. plt can produce publication-quality 2D plots in PostScript from easily-produced text or binary data files, and can also create screen plots under the X Window Sy…

Estimating Activity from Instantaneous Heart Rate

Using only a heart rate time series, it is possible to measure a number of features that reflect the level of physical activity. Here we provide software for deriving an "activity index" based on measurements of mean heart rate, total powe…

A practical method for calculating Lyapunov exponents from small data sets

Detecting the presence of chaos in a dynamical system is an important problem that is solved by measuring the largest Lyapunov exponent. Lyapunov exponents quantify the exponential divergence of initially close state-space trajectories and estimate …

ECG-Derived Respiration

The ECG-Derived Respiration (EDR) technique is an approach to obtain a respiration signal from an ECG.. It is based on the observation that the positions of ECG electrodes on the chest surface move relative to the heart, and transthoracic impedance …
