Introduction

This dataset contains signals and numerics extracted from the much larger MIMIC II matched waveform Database, along with manual breath annotations made from two annotators, using the impedance respiratory signal.

Data Collection

The original data was acquired from critically-ill patients during hospital care at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre (Boston, MA, USA). Two annotators manually annotated individual breaths in each recording using the impedance respiratory signal. The 53 recordings within the dataset, each of 8-minute duration, each contain:

This dataset was first reported in the referenced publication, in which the data was used to evaluate the performance of different algorithms for estimating respiratory rate from the pulse oximetry, or photoplethysmogram (PPG) signal.

Data Files

The dataset is distributed in three formats:

  1. WFDB (WaveForm DataBase) format, which is the standard format used by PhysioNet.
  2. CSV (comma-separated-value) format
  3. Matlab (r) format, in a manner which is a compatible with the RRest Toolbox of respiratory rate algorithms

WFDB Format

Five files are provided for each recording (where ## is the subject number):

Further details on the contents of each file are provided here

CSV Format

Separate CSV files are provided for each recording (where ## is the subject number), containing:

Matlab (r) Format

The *bidmc_data.mat* file contains the following subset of the dataset in a single Matlab (r) variable named *data*. The following are provided for each of the 53 recordings:
