Equations that can save thousands of lives
Equations that can save thousands of lives

Esther Pueyo, from the research group BSICoS, coordinator of Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, explains for the program “En route with science” of Aragon Television, her research on arrhythmias: irregularities in the functioning of the heart. Arrhythmias are the cause of 25,000 deaths per year and half of hospital admissions in Spain. First of all they study experimentally (extracting tissues from the heart of animals and humans) how the electrical activity of the said tissues is. Then, the information collected is introduced in mathematical models to understand the heart and to make predictions of what can happen in the future and[...]

STAFF III database published at Physionet
STAFF III database published at Physionet

The  STAFF III database have  gone public at Physionet! https://physionet.org/physiobank/database/staffiii/ The STAFF III database was acquired during 1995–96 at Charleston Area Medical Center (WV, USA) where single prolonged balloon inflation had been introduced to achieve optimal results of percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography (PTCA) procedures, replacing the typical series of brief inflations. The lead investigator Dr. Stafford Warren designed the study protocol together with Dr. Galen Wagner at Duke University Medical Center (Durham, NC, USA); Dr. Michael Ringborn (Blekinge Hospital, Karlskrona, Sweden) was responsible for data acquisition. The database consists of ECG recordings from 104 patients, accounting for substantial inter-patient variability in[...]

Three Universities among the 200 best in the world in science, hosting 4 Units of NANBIOSIS.
4 Units of NANBIOSIS hosted in three Universities among the 200 best in the world in science.

The University of Zaragoza is one of the 200 best universities in the world in science research, according to the latest Shanghai ranking of 2016 in a specific analysis by macro areas. In order to elaborate this ranking by macroareas indicators such as the number of students and professors who have obtained the Nobel prize or Fields medal, the number of researchers highly cited in the scientific literature, the number of scientific articles indexed in the Science Citation Index and the Percentage of articles published in the most cited 20% scientific journals are used. Only six Spanish universities are among[...]

MULTI-SCALE PHYSIOLOGY-DRIVEN COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO ASSIST CARDIAC DYSFUNCTIONS
Multi-scale physiology-driven computational tools to assist cardiac disfunctions

Researchers from the unit 27 of NANBIOSIS are developing a Multi scale physiology-driven computational tools to assist cardiac dysfunctions. They have been granted a project of the R+D+I 2016 call of Spanish National Program of “INVESTIGACIÓN, DESARROLLO E INNOVACIÓN ORIENTADA A LOS RETOS DE LA SOCIEDAD”. The project DPI2016-75458-R entitled MULTI-SCALE PHYSIOLOGY-DRIVEN COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO ASSIST IN THE ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF CARDIAC DYSFUNCTIONS is led by Juan Pablo Martinez and Esther Pueyo, of the BSICDoS-i3A and CIBER-BBN group. Both, multi-scale computational modelling, necessary to reproduce the experimental and clinical observations and the signal analysis (cellular, intracardiac and surface), shall [...]

Nanbiosis U27-Unscented Kalman Filter for Unobservable Parameter Estimation in Heart Cell Signals by David Sampedro
“Unscented Kalman Filter for Unobservable Parameter Estimation in Heart Cell Signals” by David Sampedro -Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS

Last Friday, 27th May, the “Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón” held the “V Jornada de Jóvenes Investigadores” where phD students presented their works related to different areas: Industrial Technologies, Biomedical Engineering, Processes and Recycling and Information and Communications Technology. David Adolfo Sampedro Puente, member of the BSICoS, group coordinator of Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, presented the work entitled “Unscented Kalman Filter for Unobservable Parameter Estimation in Heart Cell Signals”, supervised by Jesús Fernández Bes and Esther Pueyo Paules. This work shows a methodology to estimate unobservable parameters, such as the number of the different ion channel typologies located[...]
