|In response to customer wishes, there were made a lot of improvements in
CATEEN, CATERPA, PROSCICARDII and CAPO. With CAPO there
is a new facility to show pictures imported as tiff files in tests.
PROSCICARDII has now an extension package to process configurable external
data like blood pressure or skin resistance. CATEEM has a
new function of EEG classification, which helps to determinate
the type of patient's problems. All programs are now able to store
data with patients full names and optional anonymizing.
In a second part, I will discuss the creation of analysis directives
in the CATEEM phase analysis module. This universal tool is able to process
customer's definitions in off-line analysis. At the example of sleep
research, I will show the translation of a definition to a set of directives.
I will also show that the definitions used by human investigators
are often not complete. They must by expanded. Often the definitions are extremely
critical because of non-continuous functions. This could be corrected
by using other functions, designed to get nearly the same result, but in
a continuous way.
