heartratevariability

PURPOSE ^

HeartRateVariability Analysis according to [1]

SYNOPSIS ^

function [X] = heartratevariability(RRI,arg2)

DESCRIPTION ^

 HeartRateVariability Analysis according to [1]

 X = heartratevariability(RRI [,units])
 X = heartratevariability(qrsindex [,Fs])
 X = heartratevariability(HDR)
 X = heartratevariability(HDR.EVENT)
 X = heartratevariability(filename)
 
 
 INPUT
   RRI     R-R-intervales [in seconds]
   HDR        as defined in the header structure of BioSig 
        and returned by QRS-detection
   filename     with event information
   Fs         sampling rate - used for conversion into time axis
   units    time units e.g. 'ms' (default: 's')  

 OUTPUT
   X          struct containing the results as defined by [1]
   X.meanRR          meanRR = meanNN
   X.SDRR        standard deviaation of RR intervales
   X.RMSSD           rmsSD = SDSD
     NN50count1
     NN50count2
     NN50count
    pNN50
    SD1        width of Poincar�plot; equivalent to sqrt(2)*RMSSD [2]
    SD2        length of Poincar�plot; i.e. 2SDRR�+SDSD�/2 [2]
    r_RR         correlation coefficient [2]
   X.VLF               power of very low frequency band (< 0.04 Hz)
   X.LF                power of low frequency band (0.04-0.15 Hz)
   X.HF                power of high low frequency band (0.15-0.4 Hz)
   X.TotalPower        power of high low frequency band (0.15-0.4 Hz)
   X.LFHFratio         LF/HF-ratio
   X.LFnu              normalized units of LF power (0.04-0.15 Hz)
   X.HFnu              normalized units of HF power  (0.15-0.4 Hz)

  semilogy(X.f,X.ASpectrum) shows the spectral density function  

 The spectral estimates are based on an autoregressive spectrum estimator 
 of the data which is oversampled by a factor of 4 using the Berger method.  
 The default model order is 15. In order to change these default settings, 
 change in the source code line 211 (oversampling factor) and/or 
 line 230 (order of the autoregressive model);
