Novel techniques and digital biomarkers processing for non-contact and nonintrusive screening of Atrial Fibrillation
Luca Mainardi
Abstract: Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained disorder of cardiac rhythm and is estimated to affect 1.5%-2% of the general population with a prevalence that increases with age, and reaches nearly 10% in octogenarians. Considering the aging population, the disease is reaching a pandemic proportion which stimulates the development of methodology and technologies for the investigation of AF events in large populations both for screening purposes and for monitoring the efficiency of treatment/therapy. The talk will describe modern signal processing and modelling techniques applied to a variety of biosignals acquired in AF patients using novel technologies (wristband devices or contactless measurements) and will provide an overview of the contributes of those methods in solving the challenging problems of AF patient screening and management.
