Maintenance Notice

Due to necessary scheduled maintenance, the JMIR Publications website will be unavailable from Monday, March 11, 2019 at 4:00 PM to 4:30 PM EST. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Who will be affected?


Previously submitted to: JMIR Medical Informatics (no longer under consideration since Oct 18, 2019)

Date Submitted: Aug 8, 2019
Open Peer Review Period: Aug 12, 2019 - Oct 7, 2019
(closed for review but you can still tweet)

NOTE: This is an unreviewed Preprint

Warning: This is a unreviewed preprint (What is a preprint?). Readers are warned that the document has not been peer-reviewed by expert/patient reviewers or an academic editor, may contain misleading claims, and is likely to undergo changes before final publication, if accepted, or may have been rejected/withdrawn (a note "no longer under consideration" will appear above).

Peer-review me: Readers with interest and expertise are encouraged to sign up as peer-reviewer, if the paper is within an open peer-review period (in this case, a "Peer-Review Me" button to sign up as reviewer is displayed above). All preprints currently open for review are listed here. Outside of the formal open peer-review period we encourage you to tweet about the preprint.

Citation: Please cite this preprint only for review purposes or for grant applications and CVs (if you are the author).

Final version: If our system detects a final peer-reviewed "version of record" (VoR) published in any journal, a link to that VoR will appear below. Readers are then encourage to cite the VoR instead of this preprint.

Settings: If you are the author, you can login and change the preprint display settings, but the preprint URL/DOI is supposed to be stable and citable, so it should not be removed once posted.

Submit: To post your own preprint, simply submit to any JMIR journal, and choose the appropriate settings to expose your submitted version as preprint.

Warning: This is an author submission that is not peer-reviewed or edited. Preprints - unless they show as "accepted" - should not be relied on to guide clinical practice or health-related behavior and should not be reported in news media as established information.

Model-driven processing of cardio-respiratory data using dynalet transform

This paper proposes a new data processing approach tailored to a model of the complex biological system studied. We will take as example the cardiac system made of a stimulator (represented for the sake of simplicity by the sinoatrial node), controlled by the respiratory oscillator, synchronizing a collection of sinoatrial node myocytes (pacemaker cells) and propose a mathematical model of the global system built from two van der Pol differential systems historically proposed for giving a first approximation of the cardiac and the respiratory activity. Then, we develop the observed cardiac signal on a functional base of approximate analytic solutions of the model. Finally, we propose perspectives to use it in the early detection of the drowsiness.
