Job Description:
  1. This project aims to design an automated algorithm to detect and predict the incidence of syncope based on the hemodynamic measurements collected from sixty clinically diagnosed syncope patients and sixty age-matched controls will be recruited. In the clinical evaluation phase, haemodynamic measurements (ECG; impedance cardiography (ICG); and beat-to-beat blood pressure) will be recorded at multiple stages that included supine rest, active standing and during HUT.
