Goals

 

In high risk patients with ischemic heart disease, mortality can be reduced by implantation of a cardioverter-defibrillator. As the selection of high risk patients is a crucial part of prophylaxis, risk stratification strategies are of practical importance. In survivors of acute myocardial infarction, the predictive value of currently used risk factors is rather modest. Establishing new powerful risk predictors independent of the presently available stratifiers is therefore of considerable practical value.

Goal of the Working Group of Biological Signal Analyses is to develop new diagnostic tools for risk stratification on the basis of non-invasive biosignals, such as ECGs, arterial pressure curves and respiration signals.
