5 The Need for Biomedical Signal Processing
6 What is it? Biomedical Signal Processing: Application of signal processing methods, such as filtering, Fourier transform, spectral estimation and wavelet transform, to biomedical problems, such as the analysis of cardiac signals, the breathing cycle, etc. A broader aspect: Biomedical imaging, genomic signal processing, etc.
7 Medical Diagnosis: Heart Attack as another Example Heart attack: Coronary artery disease, blockage of blood supply to the myocardium.

49 Electroencephalogram (EEG)
50 EEG Electrical potential fluctuations of the brain. Under normal circumstances, action potentials in axons are asynchronous. If simultaneous stimulation, projection of action potentials are detectable. The analysis is based more on frequency than morphology.

54 EEG Classification
55 EEG Classification Alpha: 8 to 13Hz. Normal persons are awake in a resting state. Alpha waves disappear in sleep. Beta: 14 to 30Hz. May go up to 50Hz in intense mental activity. Beta I waves: frequency about twice that of the alpha waves and are influenced in a similar way as the alpha waves. Beta II waves appear during intense activation of the central nervous system and during tension.
56 EEG Classification Theta waves: 4 to 7Hz. During emotional stress. Delta waves Below 3.5Hz. Deep sleep or in serious organic brain disease.

61 Applications of Signal Processing Techniques
62 Sampling Digital analysis and presentation of biomedical signals. Sampling requirements. Low frequencies. Frequency ranges of different physiological signals may be overlapping. Electronic noise and interference from other physiological signals. Very weak (maybe µv level), the pre-amp circuit is often very challenging.
63 Filtering Digital filters are used to keep the in-band signals and to reject out-of-band noise. Low-pass, band-pass, high-pass and bandreject. Similar to those of other applications.
64 Noise Sources of ECG
65 High Voltage 50/60Hz AC AC 110V Ground
67 Noise Sources Inherent Instrumentation Environment From the body
68 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Powerline Noise
69 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Powerline Noise Powerline interference consists of 60Hz tone with random initial phase. It can be modeled as sinusoids and its combinations. The characteristics of this noise are generally consistent for a given measurement situation and, once set, will not change during a detector evaluation. Its typical SNR is in the order of 3dB.
70 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Electromyographic Noise
71 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Electromyographic Noise EMG noise is caused by muscular contractions, which generate millivolt-level potentials. It is assumed to be zero mean Gaussian noise. The standard deviation determines the SNR, whose typical value is in the order of 18dB.
72 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Respirational Noise
73 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Respirational Noise Respiration noise considers both the sinusoidal drift of the baseline and the ECG sinusoidal amplitude modulation. The drift can be represented as a sinusoidal component at the frequency of respiration added to the ECG signal. The amplitude variation is about 15 percent of peak-to-peak ECG amplitude. It is simulated with a sinusoid of 0.3Hz frequency with typical SNR 32dB. The modulation is another choice of representing respiration noise. It can be simulated with 0.3Hz sinusoid of 12dB SNR.
74 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Motion Artifacts
75 Ideal Signal Vs. Signal with Motion Artifacts Motion artifact is caused by displacements between electrodes and skin due to patients slow movement. It is simulated with an exponential function that decays with time. Typically the duration is 0.16 second and the amplitude is almost as large as the peak-to-peak amplitude. The phase is random with a uniform distribution.
76 Noise Removal The four types of noises are mostly sinusoidal or Gaussian. The sinusoidal noises are usually removed with a notch filter. Other distortions are zeroed out using the moving average.
77 Adaptive Noise Cancellation Noise from power line (60Hz noise). The noise is also in the desired frequency range of several biomedical signals (e.g., ECG), notch filter is required. Adaptive filtering: The amplitude and exact frequency of the noise may change.

81 Pattern Recognition Abnormal physiological signals vs. the normal counterparts. An average of several known normal waveforms can be used as a template. The new waveforms are detected, segmented and compared to the template. Correlation coefficient can be used to quantify the similarity. = = = = N i X i N i T i N i X i T i X T X T ) ( ) ( ) )( ( µ µ µ µ ρ
