Abstract

A time-domain technique to estimate transfer characteristics from fluctuations of instantaneous lung volume (ILV) to heart rate (HR) is presented. Pure moving average (MA) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) system identification techniques were introduced to characterize the system. Preprocessing (prefiltering of the HR fluctuations and preenhancement of the high-frequency contents of ILV fluctuations) are shown to be effective in obtaining stable estimates of MA coefficients. Model order selection of the ARMA system based on prior knowledge of the system characteristics is proposed. Data analysis using the time-domain techniques revealed some temporal transfer characteristics which are poorly resolved using frequency-domain analysis.
