Abstract— Objective: Recently, pupil oscillation synchronized with a steady visual stimulus was employed for an input of an interface. The system is inspired by steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) BCIs, but it eliminates the need for contact with the participant because it does not need electrodes to measure electroencephalography. However, the stimulation frequency is restricted to being below 2.5 Hz because of the mechanics of pupillary vibration and information transfer rate (ITR) is lower than SSVEP BCIs.

Context awareness is an emerging field in pervasive computing with applications that have started to emerge in medical systems. The present work seeks to determine which contexts are important for medical applications and what various domains of context aware applications exist in healthcare. Methods: A systematic scoping review of context aware medical systems currently being used in healthcare settings was conducted.

Using acoustic waves to estimate fluid concentration is a promising technology due to its practicality and non-intrusive aspect, especially for medical applications. The existing approaches are exclusively based on the correlation between the reflection coefficient and the concentration. However, these techniques are limited by the high sensitivity of the reflection coefficient to environmental conditions changes, even slight ones. This introduces inaccuracies that cannot be tolerated in medical applications.

This <file> was prepared along with the establishment of the reference intervals for the hematological and biochemical parameters of the juvenile Visayan warty pig (Sus cebifrons negrinus).  The determination of the reference intervals of the juvenile Visayan warty pig was significant, as these reference intervals have never been established for the purpose of assessing the health of this critically endangered species. The file contains six separate sheets featuring the raw and transformed data, as well as the calculated reference interval.

A global increase in the prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes is strongly connected to an increased prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) worldwide. In this article, the progression of the NAFLD process is modeled by continuous time Markov chains (CTMCs) with nine states. Maximum likelihood is used to estimate the transition intensities among the states. Once the transition intensities are obtained, the mean sojourn time and its variance are estimated, and the state probability distribution and its asymptotic covariance matrix are also estimated.

I tackle the problem of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) from the statistical point of view. Using the multistate model, in the form of the continuous time Markov chains, helps the statistical analysis of the progression of the disease over time. The simplest model of the health-disease-death process is applied to the NAFLD. The model is composed of 8 pdfs and 5 rates that need to be estimated. Maximum likelihood and quasi-Newton methods are applied to estimate the transition rates among states.

Asthma is a common, usually long-term respiratory disease with negative impact on society and the economy worldwide. Treatment involves using medical devices (inhalers) that distribute medicationto the airways, and its efficiency depends on the precision of the inhalation technique. Health monitoring systems equipped with sensors and embedded with sound signal detection enable the recognition of drug actuation and could be powerful tools for reliable audio content analysis.
