The advent of telehealth applications and remote patient monitoring has led to an increasing need for continuous signal quality monitoring to ensure high diagnostic accuracy of the recordings. Cardiovascular diseases often manifest electrophysiological anomalies, therefore the electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most used signals for diagnostic applications. Various types of noise and artifacts are not uncommon in ECG recordings and assessing the quality of the signal is essential prior to any clinical interpretation. In this study, a dynamic signal quality index (dSQI) is introduced using a new time-frequency template-based approach.

Functional metrics of autonomic control of heart rate, including baroreflex sensitivity, have been shown to be strongly associated with cardiovascular risk. A decrease in baroreflex sensitivity with aging is hypothesized to represent a contributing causal factor in the etiology of primary hypertension. To assess baroreflex function in human subjects, two complementary methods to simulate the response in heart rate elicited by the Valsalva maneuver were developed and applied to data obtained from a cohort of healthy normal volunteers.

The CVES database contains multimodal data from a large study investigating the effects of ischemic stroke on cerebral vasoregulation. The cross sectional study compared 60 subjects who suffered strokes, to 60 control subjects, collecting the following data for each patient across multiple days: transcranial doppler of cerebral arteries, 24-h blood pressure numerics, high resolution waveforms (ECG, blood pressure, CO2 and respiration) during various movement tasks, 24-h ECG, EMG, and accelerometer recordings, and gait pressure recordings during a walking test.

The 2018 PhysioNet/Computing in Cardiology Challenge is now open. This year's Challenge, "You Snooze, You Win", is focused on the problem of automatically detecting disturbances in a patient's sleep. Given a collection of physiological signals recorded during sleep, including EEG, ECG, and EMG, participants are invited to develop an algorithm to automatically identify arousal events, and will be scored based on how well their algorithm's results agree with those of expert human annotators.
