Book Description :

Vital signs, such as heart rate and respiration rate, are useful to health monitoring because they can provide important physiological insights for medical diagnosis and well-being management. Most traditional methods for measuring vital signs require a person to wear biomedical devices, such as a capnometer, a pulse oximeter, or an electrocardiogram sensor. These contact-based technologies are inconvenient, cumbersome, and uncomfortable to use. There is a compelling need for technologies that enable contact-free, easily deployable, and long-term monitoring of vital signs for healthcare. Contactless Vital Signs Monitoring presents a systematic and in-depth review on the principles, methodologies, and opportunities of using different wavelengths of an electromagnetic spectrum to measure vital signs from the human face and body contactlessly. The volume brings together pioneering researchers active in the field to report the latest progress made, in an intensive and structured way. It also presents various healthcare applications using camera and radio frequency-based monitoring, from clinical care to home care, to sport training and automotive, such as patient/neonatal monitoring in intensive care units, general wards, emergency department triage, MR/CT cardiac and respiratory gating, sleep centers, baby/elderly care, fitness cardio training, driver monitoring in automotive settings, and more. This book will be an important educational source for biomedical researchers, AI healthcare researchers, computer vision researchers, wireless-sensing researchers, doctors/clinicians, physicians/psychologists, and medical equipment manufacturers. Includes various contactless vital signs monitoring techniques, such as optical-based, radar-based, WiFi-based, RFID-based, and acoustic-based methods. Presents a thorough introduction to the measurement principles, methodologies, healthcare applications, hardware set-ups, and systems for contactless measurement of vital signs using camera or RF sensors. Presents the opportunities for the fusion of camera and RF sensors for contactless vital signs monitoring and healthcare.

Book Description :

Wireless sensing find many biomedical applications due to the benefit and convenience of having no contact with the patients. Low power radio waves, that are biologically safe, can monitor the patient's medical conditions such as the breathing and heart beat rate. Electro-magnetic (EM) waves extract the small movements of the chest and heart via field disturbance phenomena. The patient's breathing and heart beat modulate the radio waves for the vital signs to be monitored in real-time. Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar is an EM scattering technology that has been proven to discriminate targets with less than 30mm range resolution, which is smaller than the average size of a human heart. The UWB radar emits 200ps pulses that occupy a bandwidth from 3 to 10GHz. For linearly polarized radiation, the radar cross-section (RCS) of a moving target having complex shapes such as the thorax section of a human body causes regular fading. The scattering from a complex target rotates the radio wave vector to result in non-optimal signal reception due to polarization losses. The research focuses on the design of a circularly polarized (CP) UWB radar system for contactless vital signs monitoring of a patient. Circular polarization is introduced to address the fading RCS problem thus achieving a more robust system. The same CP UWB radar system with radio waves that penetrate through dielectric objects can be used for time-critical rescue operations in locating survivors buried under collapsed structures or in buildings engulfed in flames where visibility is hampered. Furthermore, by employing material characterization and microwave imaging techniques, it is possible to use the proposed system for other biomedical applications such as tumor localization and damaged tissue identification. The thesis is organized as follows. Firstly, the operation of UWB radar is presented and the research topic addressed. The pulse generator design suited for low pulse repetition rates is then introduced. The design of a decade bandwidth circularly polarized antenna array is described. The methodology and performance of the robust vital signs monitoring system is shown and compared with the linear polarized counterpart. A new method for material characterization using time domain RCS measurements is demonstrated. The future work is finally proposed.
