LabVIEW for Biomedical Signal Analysis


Overview

The NI Biomedical Startup Kit 2.1.1 is a suite of applications for use in the biomedical field for research purposes.
These applications enable you to apply biomedical solutions using National Instruments software, such as LabVIEW,
with National Instruments hardware, such as NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite II (NI ELVIS II).
You can use these applications to perform built-in biomedical applications, such as acquiring, preprocessing,
extracting, and analyzing biosignals.

You can acquire real world and real-time biomedical data by using biomedical sensors and National Instruments
hardware. You also can import biomedical data from files, such as files from the MIT-BIH database, to the
applications in this kit for analysis. You can use the applications in this kit to extract features from electrocardiogram
(ECG) signals, to analyze heart rate variability (HRV), and to measure blood pressure. You also can use National
Instruments hardware and the applications in this kit to generate standard analog, biomedical signals to validate and
test your biomedical instruments.

This kit contains the following applications:

File Format Converter


Converts files between different file types such as TDMS, LVM, ABF, MIT-BIH Database, MAT and EDF. MAT files
are written by MATLAB®.

Biosignal Logger
Utilizes analog input channels from National Instruments hardware, such as NI ELVIS II or NI data acquisition
(DAQ) hardware, to acquire signals.

ECG Feature Extractor


Imports ECG signals from different file types, such as TDMS, LVM, ABF, MIT-BIH Database, MAT, and EDF. MAT
files are written by MATLAB®.
Integrates robust extraction algorithms to detect ECG features, such as the QRS Complex, P wave, and T wave.
Supports user-defined algorithms. (This feature requires you to modify the source code of this startup kit.)
Exports ECG features to a TDMS file.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Analyzer


Provides a variety of analysis methods for HRV analysis including time domain, frequency domain, joint time-
frequency domain, and nonlinear analysis.
Supports user-defined analysis methods (This feature requires you to modify the source code of this startup kit.)
Generates analysis report files.

Noninvasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) Analyzer


Utilizes analog input channels from National Instruments hardware, such as NI ELVIS II or NI DAQ hardware, to
control the NIBP device and acquire pressure signals.
Provides the functionality of NIBP analysis for research purposes by using the oscillometric method.

The Biomedical Startup Kit 2.1.1 requires the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 8.6.1. You can download a free copy of the
LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 8.6.1 from http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/1244/lang/en. If you want to use the DAQ
function, you need to install NI-DAQmx™. You can download an evaluation copy of the software from
http://www.ni.com/dataacquisition/software/.

The source code for the Biomedical Startup Kit 2.1.1 is available for internal purposes only upon request.

Please contact dsp.nish@ni.com to request more information about this article and the startup kit.
