Journal Article
Bojarnejad, M., Blake, J. R., Bourke, J., Shepherd, E., Murray, A., & Langley, P. (2014). Non-invasive estimation of left atrial dominant frequency in atrial fibrillation from different electrode sites : insight from body surface potential mapping. Journal of atrial fibrillation, 7(3), 6-10

The dominant driving sources of atrial fibrillation are often found in the left atrium, but the expression of left atrial activation on the body surface is poorly understood. Using body surface potential mapping and simultaneous invasive measurements...

Recurring patterns of atrial fibrillation in surface ECG predict restoration of sinus rhythm by catheter ablation (2014)
Journal Article
Di Marco, L. Y., Raine, D., Bourke, J. P., & Langley, P. (2014). Recurring patterns of atrial fibrillation in surface ECG predict restoration of sinus rhythm by catheter ablation. Computers in biology and medicine, 54, 172-179. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compbiomed.2014.09.005

Background Non-invasive tools to help identify patients likely to benefit from catheter ablation (CA) of atrial fibrillation (AF) would facilitate personalised treatment planning. Aim To investigate atrial waveform organisation through recurrence plo...

Extracting fetal heart beats from maternal abdominal recordings: Selection of the optimal principal components (2014)
Journal Article
Di Maria, C., Liu, C., Zheng, D., Murray, A., & Langley, P. (2014). Extracting fetal heart beats from maternal abdominal recordings: Selection of the optimal principal components. Physiological Measurement, 35(8), 1649-1664. https://doi.org/10.1088/0967-3334/35/8/1649

This study presents a systematic comparison of different approaches to the automated selection of the principal components (PC) which optimise the detection of maternal and fetal heart beats from non-invasive maternal abdominal recordings. A public d... Read More about Extracting fetal heart beats from maternal abdominal recordings: Selection of the optimal principal components.

Recurring patterns in stationary intervals of abdominal uterine electromyograms during gestation (2014)
Journal Article
Di Marco, L. Y., Di Maria, C., Tong, W., Taggart, M. J., Robson, S. C., & Langley, P. (2014). Recurring patterns in stationary intervals of abdominal uterine electromyograms during gestation. Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, 52(8), 707-716. doi:10.1007/s11517-014-1174-6

Abdominal uterine electromyograms (uEMG) studies have focused on uterine contractions to describe the evolution of uterine activity and preterm birth (PTB) prediction. Stationary, non-contracting uEMG has not been studied. The aim of the study was to... Read More about Recurring patterns in stationary intervals of abdominal uterine electromyograms during gestation.
