By James Goh, Chwee Teck Lim

This quantity publishes the complaints of the WACBE international Congress on Bioengineering 2015 (WACBE 2015), which used to be be held in Singapore, from 6 to eight July 2015.

The international organization for chinese language Biomedical Engineers (WACBE) organizes this global Congress biannually. Our previous congresses have introduced jointly many biomedical engineers from over the realm to proportion their studies and perspectives at the destiny improvement of biomedical engineering. The seventh WACBE international Congress on Bioengineering 2015 in Singapore persevered to provide the sort of networking platform for all biomedical engineers. Hosted via the Biomedical Engineering Society (Singapore) and the dept of Biomedical Engineering, nationwide college of Singapore, the congress lined all similar components in bioengineering.

SE 5/5a Aces of World War I

The Royal airplane manufacturing unit SE 5/5a used to be, besides the Sopwith Camel, the most important British battling scout of the final 18 months of the warfare in France. It outfitted numerous significant squadrons, the 1st being No fifty six Sqn in April 1917. This unit turned well-known for the variety of aces it had between its pilots, together with Albert Ball, James McCudden, Geoffrey Bowman, Richard Maybery, Leonard Barlow, Hank Burden and Cyril Crowe.

Pre- and post-processing processes III. During the pre-processing stage, a Butterworth band-pass filter of 1-30 Hz was chosen [16]. LabVIEW system-design platform from National Instrument was used in this study. A second order dynamic system is a system’s response that can be described by a second order ordinary differential equation (ODE) as in equation (1). ௗమ ௗ ‫ݔ‬ሺ‫ݐ‬ሻ ൅ ʹǤ ߞǤ ߱ ‫ݔ‬ሺ‫ݐ‬ሻ ൅ ߱ଶ ‫ݔ‬ሺ‫ݐ‬ሻ ൌ ‫߱ܩ‬ଶ ‫ݑ‬ሺ‫ݐ‬ሻ (1) ௗ௧ where x(t) is the response of the system, u(t) is the input to the system, ȗ is the damping coefficient; to determine how much the system oscillates as the response decays toward steady state, Ȧ is the natural frequency; to determine how fast the system oscillates during any transient response, and G is the gain of the system; to determine the size of steady state response when input settles out at constant value.

Comparing Lead I and Lead II ECG signals, Lead I is considered better than Lead II for AF and N classification. As revealed in Tables 1 and 2, more parameters (4 features) from Lead I showed significant differences than those obtained from Lead II (1 feature). By using artificial neural networks (ANNs) of 2-layer feed-forward back-propagation, each significant parameter (of the four parameters) provides more than 95 % accuracy. Therefore, the use of a second-order system was found to be effective in the classification of atrial fibrillation.

The results are not of practical use since the background noise is ignored [5]. Some wandering or noise due to uterine contractions in one form or another would always be present. In short, fECG extraction remains an area of intensive research. A simple approach to identify the fECG of good quality and to infer the fetal heart rate from it, is being discussed here. The method yields good results, even though the algorithm involves less number of steps. This uses a single abdominal channel and the fECG is being extracted without using any other channel information or reference channel.
