Forthcoming and Online First Articles

International Journal of Computational Medicine and Healthcare (IJCMH)

Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Investigation of normal and abnormal blood pressure signal using hilbert transform, Z-transform and modified Z-tranform   Order a copy of this article
    Abstract: The analysis of neurocardiological signals and their fluctuations is a popular tool of medical diagnostics. Aside from heart diseases, it may investigate the performance of many other organs. In this category, the electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure, respiration rate and blood flow are the most versatile signals. Blood pressure (BP) control is very significant in the lifespan of every individual. If it goes out of the boundary, then runs a risk of heart attack increases. During anesthesia, BP is the main challenge. If any time, lag time (dead time) comes in the process and then it is very unsafe for the life of that person. The first measure towards the minimization of that delay time is its analysis. Delay time may be integer or fractional in nature. That is why ordinary Z- transform fails in that category. In this paper authors have been proposed modified Z-transform and its execution on real hospital BP database. Modified Z-transform gave better result at low values of the sampling period. Transient and steady-state parameters were also checked for that analysis. Hilbert transform is used to find out the hidden time information (on the basis of obtained frequency contents).

    by Renee Pierre-Louis, Ning Jackie Zhang, Terrence F. Cahill, Genevieve Pinto-Zipp 
    Abstract: The US Census Bureau predicts the foreign-born population living in the U.S. will increase from 13.3% in 2014 to 18.8% by 2060. This growth will correspondingly increase the prevalence of individuals with limited English proficiency (
