Vital sign monitoring and data fusion in haemodialysis

Abstract:

Intra-dialytic hypotension (IDH) is the most common complication in haemodialysis (HD) treatment and has been linked with increased mortality in HD patients. Despite various approaches towards understanding the underlying physiological mechanisms giving rise to IDH, the causes of IDH are poorly understood. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has previously been suggested as a predictive measure of IDH. In contrast to conventional spectral HRV measures in which the frequency bands are defined by f...
