Proof of concept for efficient compression of human vital signals
The following paper discusses software and data extraction techniques to effectively transmit medical data in its most basic format. The vitals chosen for analysis are the electro-cardiograph (ECG/EKG) signal, and pupillary reflex activity tracking. Between these two vitals, and body temperature, doctors can generally make a large variety of determinations of a person’s health. The goal of this paper is to minimize the amount of data that is transmitted, without losing much integrity, and with the hope that it can be sent over very low latency networks, possibly even used for storage in the future. The methods proposed can eventually also be utilized toward a more automated way of detecting irregularities/concerns.
