Cyclostationary analysis of respiratory signals with application of rate determination
MetadataShow full item record
Respiratory signals are periodic-like signals where the noisy periodic pattern repeats itself. Therefore, based on a stationarity assumption, autocorrelation function contains noisy cycles in time-lag with the same rate as the respiration rate. In this work, cyclostationarity test is performed on the respiratory signals in order to determine cyclic characteristics of the time varying autocorrelation function. Our specific aim is to check whether the cycle period in time corresponds to the respiration rate. Lung simulator was used to generate the respiratory signals. Time varying autocorrelation variance was computed by using both the modified windowed, and the blocked signal methods. Our simulations resulted that the cycle period was the same as the respiration period. Moreover, we observed that cyclic frequencies corresponded to the respiratory rate and its harmonics.
