  • Publication number: 20190227993
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing electronic data are disclosed. Various data management operations can be performed based on a metabase formed from metadata. Such metadata can be identified from an index of data interactions generated by a journaling module, and obtained from their associated data objects stored in one or more storage devices. In various embodiments, such processing of the index and storing of the metadata can facilitate, for example, enhanced data management operations, enhanced data identification operations, enhanced storage operations, data classification for organizing and storing the metadata, cataloging of metadata for the stored metadata, and/or user interfaces for managing data. In various embodiments, the metabase can be configured in different ways. For example, the metabase can be stored separately from the data objects so as to allow obtaining of information about the data objects without accessing the data objects or a data structure used by a file system.

  • Patent number: 10231638
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed to signal processing. In accordance with example embodiments, methods and apparatuses involve using at least two electrodes that sense an ECG signal. A denoising module is communicatively coupled to the at least two electrodes, and receives the ECG signal sensed by the sensing electrodes. The denoising module includes circuitry that conditions and digitizes the ECG signal, and a computing circuit that processes the digitized ECG signal to denoise the ECG signal. A communications circuit generates a communication including the denoised ECG signal for access by a remote device.

  • Patent number: 10098561
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to detecting Atrial Fibrillation (AF). As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, a time series of inter-beat intervals is computed from a recording of activity of a beating heart. The time series is decomposed into subcomponents, and an envelope of at least one of the subcomponents is computed. The presence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is detected based upon characteristics of the envelope that are indicative of AF.

  • Patent number: 9492096
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to processing ECG signals from a subject. As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, respective electrodes sense ECG signals from a subject, and the ECG signals are digitized and processed, such as to remove noise, detect a QRS complex, evaluate quality, detect arrhythmia and/or to store the signals. In response to an input from the subject, one or more of the ECG signals is recorded along with sound from the user, such as to concurrently record the user's voice for describing conditions in connection with the recording of the ECG signals. This approach can be carried out in an enclosed housing, operated adjacent the subject's thorax. The processed digitized ECG signals and the audio signals are then communicated for receipt by an external device.

  • Patent number: 9408549
    Abstract: Various aspects are directed to identifying a region of interest in a physiological signal. As may be consistent with one or more embodiments, the physiological signal is decomposed into subcomponents, and a subset of the subcomponents is selected based upon overlap of spectral energy with expected spectral energy of the region of interest, in at least one of the subcomponents. At least two of the subcomponents in the subset are combined and compared to a threshold, with the comparison being used to identify the location of the region of interest.
