Abstract: The increased masses of data confronting us, originate a pressing need for the creation of a user interface for better handling and extracting knowledge from it. In this work we developed such a tool for the analysis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV). The analysis of HRV in patients with neuromuscular diseases, sleep disorders and cardiorespiratory problems has a strong impact on clinical practice. It has been widely used for monitoring the autonomic nervous system (ANS), whose regulatory effect controls the cardiac activity. These patients need to be continuously monitored, which originates data with huge sizes. Our interactive tool can perform a fast analysis of HRV from such data. It provides the analysis of HRV in time and frequency domains, and from non-linear methods. The tool is suitable to be run in a web environment, rendering it highly portable. It includes a programming feature, which enables the user to perform additional analysis of the data by giving direct access to the s ignals in a signal processing programming environment. We also added a report generation functionality, which is extremely important from a clinical standpoint, on which the evolution in time of relevant HRV parameters is depicted. (More)
