Comparison of systolic time interval measurement modalities for portable devices



Abstract—Systolic time intervals (STI) have shown significant diagnostic and prognostic
value to assess the global cardiac function. Their value has been largely established in
hospital settings. Currently, STI are considered a promising tool for longterm patient follow-
up with chronic cardiovascular diseases. Several technologies exist that enable beat-by-
beat assessment of STI in personal health application scenarios. A comparative study is
presented using the echocardiographic gold standard synchronized with impedance ...
