Abstract

Heart rate changes were monitored in 10 patients with 104 seizures, mostly tonic and myoclonic, to assess the value of various modalities for the detection of seizures based on heart rate. EEG/video monitoring served as the golden standard. Two algorithms were developed. First, a curve-fitting algorithm was used to characterize the heart rate patterns. A second algorithm based on a moving median filter was developed for automatic detection of the heart rate change onset. For varying model parameters the sensitivity (SENS) and positive predictive values (PPV) were determined
