As the scientists point out, this technology can do more than just exploit the human heartbeat
to determine emotional state:
Schreck developed the idea to record patient's heartbeats
after hearing a moving story about a family whose daughter passed away after an accident.
technology solutions consolidate clinical communications, including alarms and notifications, patient information and lab data, secure texting, voice and photography.
But every single beat of their heart makes one of their Heartbeats
By also recording the volunteers' heartbeat
signals using electrodes, the timing of the heartbeat
was used to trigger a bright flashing outline which was superimposed on the virtual body shown via the HMD.
In atrial fibrillation, the atria (upper chambers of the heart) beat in a disorganised way leading to an irregular heartbeat
The discovery was made using a machine called a magnetocardiograph, which uses a strong magnetic field to record heartbeats
can indicate coronary heart disease or electrical heart disease, both of which can go undetected in their early stages and are signs of arrhythmia (abnormal or irregular heartbeats
What to do: If you have irregular heartbeats
, ask your doctor if you should take fish oil supplements.
You will need a watch with a second hand, a stool, and a pencil to record heartbeats
Herbal weight-loss drug Metabolife 356 can cause subtle changes in a person's heartbeat
, the kind of alterations that sometimes lead to dangerous heart arrhythmias, researchers say.
The researchers found that there was a marked peak in irregular heartbeats
on Mondays, followed by a midweek decline and a secondary peak on Fridays.
