    Background: Numerous studies have been conducted regarding a heartbeat classification algorithm over the past several decades. However, many algorithms have also been studied to acquire robust performance, as biosignals have a large amount of variation among individuals. Various methods have...

    Heart rate of the freshwater turtle (Trachemys scripta) is markedly depressed with anoxia exposure and arises in part from a resetting of intrinsic heart rate. Hyperpolarization-activated and cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels ("pacemaker" channels) constitute an important component in the...

    Myocardial damage is a metabolic phenomenon attributed to the lack of oxygen supply. The effect of the blood substitute perftoran on the ECG parameters registered was studied using the model of acute experimental epinephrine-induced hypoxic myocardial damage in rats. The introduction of...
