  • Patent number: 11337637
    Abstract: Systems, methods, devices, and techniques for analyzing and applying features of a T-wave derived from an electrocardiogram. A computing system can receive a set of data that characterizes an electrocardiogram of a patient. The system can analyze the set of data to identify a T-wave that occurs in the electrocardiogram. The system can determine values of one or more features of the T-wave and provide the information that identifies the values of the one or more features of the T-wave to a user.

  • Publication number: 20210382472
    Abstract: A physical system receives and records measurements from a plurality of sensors for the physical system over a period of time and creates therefrom a statistical model of normal behavior of the physical system. The statistical model is applied to monitor the physical system for events or significant changes. The method detects events or significant changes in the operation or behavior of the physical system responsive to the monitoring of the physical system for events or significant changes. Events or significant changes in the operation or behavior of the physical system may cause a notification or alert, which can be sent a supervisory system.
