How to cite the VU-AMS


To cite the VU-AMS system you could use the first two journal publications describing the VU-AMS 4.6 device:

E.J. De Geus, G.H. Willemsen, C.H. Klaver and L.J. Van Doornen
Ambulatory measurement of respiratory sinus arrhythmia and respiration rate
Biol.Psychol., 41(3):205--227 1995          

Willemsen, G. H. M., de Geus, E. J. C., Klaver, C. H. A. M., VanDoornen, L. J. P., & Carroll, D. (1996).
Ambulatory monitoring of the impedance cardiogram.
Psychophysiology, 33, 184-193.

 

Or you may specifically reference papers that have a detailed description of heart rate and heart rate variability (HR, RMSSD,RSA) assessment or systolic time intervals  and stroke volume assessments (PEP, LVET, SV).

HR, RMSSD,RSA:

E.J. De Geus, G.H. Willemsen, C.H. Klaver and L.J. Van Doornen
Ambulatory measurement of respiratory sinus arrhythmia and respiration rate
Biol.Psychol., 41(3):205--227
1995

A.D. Goedhart, van der Sluis S., J.H. Houtveen, G. Willemsen and E.J. De Geus
Comparison of time and frequency domain measures of RSA in ambulatory recordings
Psychophysiology, 44(2):203--21
2007

PEP, LVET, SV:

Willemsen, G. H. M., de Geus, E. J. C., Klaver, C. H. A. M., VanDoornen, L. J. P., & Carroll, D.
Ambulatory monitoring of the impedance cardiogram.
Psychophysiology, 33, 184-193.
1996

H. Riese, P.F. Groot, van den Berg M., N.H. Kupper, E.H. Magnee, E.J. Rohaan, T.G. Vrijkotte, G. Willemsen and E.J. De Geus
Large-scale ensemble averaging of ambulatory impedance cardiograms.
Behav.Res.Methods Instrum.Comput., 35(3):467--477
2003

A.D. Goedhart, N. Kupper, G. Willemsen, D.I. Boomsma and E.J. De Geus
Temporal stability of ambulatory stroke volume and cardiac output measured by impedance cardiography
Biol.Psychol., 72(1):110--117
2006

A single publication that deals with ambulatory recording of both RSA and PEP and explains 24-hour recording labeling is:

E.J.C. de Geus and L.J.P. van Doornen
Ambulatory assessment of parasympathetic/sympathetic balance by impedance cardiography
In Fahrenberg J. and Myrtek M., editor, Ambulatory assessment: Computer-assisted psychological and psychophysiological methods in monitoring and field studies
page 141--163.
Publisher: Hogrefe & Huber, Gottingen, Germany
