Heartprints - A Dynamical Portrait of Cardiac Arrhythmia

As part of an effort to visualize and to understand the dynamics of cardiac arrhythmias with frequent ventricular ectopy, we have developed a new representational technique termed "heartprints." These heartprints are a combination of seven…

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…
