Abstract

In order to better understand the relationship between model order selection by the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) and AR spectral fidelity in the analysis of cardiovascular variability signals, we selected a set of signals (pulse interval, invasive and non invasive systolic and diastolic arterial pressure) characterized by having major oscillations easily recognizable by eye and clearly detected by the Blackman-Tukey spectral estimator. After model order estimation by the AIC and AR spectral estimation, we checked if main spectral features were actually reproduced. The sample records were chosen 3 min long. In most cases the AR estimator failed in resolving spectral components in the low frequency region ( 18), all missed peaks were always resolved. Our results suggest that AR spectral estimation based on automatic selection of model order by the AIC may lead to oversmoothed spectra, masking some oscillatory characteristics of cardiovascular variability signals.
