Method and apparatus for phonocardiographic image acquisition and presentation

, : Method and apparatus for phonocardiographic image acquisition and presentation. Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office

A cardiac rhythm management system provides a phonocardiographic image indicative of a heart's mechanical events related to hemodynamic performance. The phonocardiographic image includes a stack of acoustic sensor signal segments representing multiple cardiac cycles. Each acoustic sensor signal segment includes heart sounds indicative of the heart's mechanical events and representations of the heart's electrical events.

Background: Hypertensives may develop bilateral trapping of para-aminohippurate analogues in the tissue of the kidneys during light exercise, as can be demonstrated using radioactively labelled (131I)-hippurate or (99mTc)-mercaptoacetyl-triglycine...

Endotheial modulation of norepinephrine (NE)-induced constriction of the isolated rat aorta was studied at normal (Pco2, 41 .+-. 0 mmHg) and high CO2 tensions (Pco2, 91 .+-. 1 mmHg). In preparations with intact endothelium, increased CO2 tension r...
