MIMIC-II database version 2.6.

Rev: 290 LastChangedDate: 2011-09-07 15:23:22 -0400 (Wed, 07 Sep 2011)


This user guide is intended for clinicians with some knowledge of programming and/or graduate-level researchers with knowledge of biomedical signal processing. The user is expected to have a working knowledge of SQL. Basic knowledge of a statistical (signal processing) package such as Matlab or R is useful. Knowledge of C/C++ and/or Java may also help, but is not essential.

Many of the signal processing algorithms and data sets described in this guide are available from, or described in papers posted at the following URLs:

Most of the algorithms posted at the above URLs have been written either in C or Matlab. Libraries for reading these databases are also freely available. We hope that through these URLs this database will continue to evolve and add to the growing body of open (repeatable) biomedical research.
