Multiscale Entropy of the Heart Rate Variability for the Prediction of an Ischemic Stroke in Patients with Permanent Atrial Fibrillation

Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a significant risk factor for ischemic strokes, and making a robust risk stratification scheme would be important. Few studies have examined whether nonlinear dynamics of the heart rate could predict ischemic strokes in AF. We examined whether a novel complexity measurement of the heart rate variability called multiscale entropy (MSE) was a...

Accuracy of ECG-based screening for sleep-disordered breathing: a survey of all male workers in a transport company

Purpose Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and for sleepiness-related accidents, but >75 % of the patients remain undiagnosed. We sought to determine the diagnostic accuracy of ECG-based detection of SDB when used for population-based screening. Methods All male workers, mostly truck drivers, of a...
