A Novel Reliable Method Assess HRV for Heart Disease Diagnosis Using Bipolar MVF Algorithm
International journal of Biomedical Engineering and Science
In a simple words, the heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the divergence in heart complex wave (beatto-beat) intervals. It is a reliable repercussion of many, psychological, physiological, also environmental factors modulating therhythm of the heart. Seriously, the HRV act as a powerful tool for observation the interaction between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. However, it has a frequency that is great for supervision, surveillance, and following up the cases. Finally,
... the cases. Finally, the generating structure of heart complex wave signal is not simply linear, but also it involves the nonlinear contributions. Those two contributions are totally correlated. HRV is stochastic and chaotic (stochaotic) signal. It has utmost importance in heart diseases diagnosis, and it needs a sensitive tool to analyze its variability. In early works, Rosenstein and Wolf had used the Lyapunov exponent (LE) as a quantitative measure for HRV detection sensitivity, but the Rosenstein and Wolf methods diverge in determining the main features of HRV sensitivity, while Mazhar-Eslam introduced a modification algorithm to overcome the Rosenstein and Wolf drawbacks. The present work introduces a novel reliable method to analyze the linear and nonlinear behaviour of heart complex wave variability, and to assess the use of the HRV as a versatile tool for heart disease diagnosis. This paper introduces a declaration for the concept of the LE parameters to be used for HRV diagnosis and proposes a modified algorithm for a more sensitive parameters computation.
