Systole is an open-source Python package implementing simple tools for working with cardiac signals for psychophysiology research. In particular, the package provides tools to pre-process, visualize, and analyze cardiac data. This includes tools for data epoching, artefact detection, artefact correction, evoked heart rate analyses, heart rate variability analyses, circular statistical approaches to analysing cardiac cycles, and synchronising stimulus presentation with different cardiac phases via Psychopy.

The documentation can be found under the following link.

If you have questions, you can ask them in the Gitter chat.

Installation

Systole can be installed using pip:

pip install systole

The following packages are required to use Systole:

The Python version should be 3.7 or higher.

Getting started

from systole import import_dataset1

# Import ECg recording
signal = import_dataset1(modalities=['ECG']).ecg.to_numpy()

Signal extraction and interactive plotting

The package integrates a set of functions for interactive or non interactive data visualization based on Matplotlib and Bokeh.

from systole.plots import plot_raw

plot_raw(signal[60000 : 120000], modality="ecg", backend="bokeh",
            show_heart_rate=True, show_artefacts=True, figsize=300)

Artefacts detection and rejection

Artefacts can be detected and corrected in the RR interval time series or the peaks vector using the method proposed by Lipponen & Tarvainen (2019).

from systole.detection import ecg_peaks
from systole.plots import plot_subspaces

# R peaks detection
signal, peaks = ecg_peaks(signal, method='pan-tompkins', sfreq=1000)

plot_subspaces(peaks, input_type="peaks", backend="bokeh")

Heart rate variability analysis

Systole implements time-domain, frequency-domain and non-linear HRV indices, as well as tools for evoked heart rate analysis.

from bokeh.layouts import row
from systole.plots import plot_frequency, plot_poincare

row(
    plot_frequency(peaks, input_type="peaks", backend="bokeh", figsize=(300, 200)),
    plot_poincare(peaks, input_type="peaks", backend="bokeh", figsize=(200, 200)),
    )

Online systolic peak detection, cardiac-stimulus synchrony, and cardiac circular analysis

The package natively supports recording of physiological signals from the following setups: - Nonin 3012LP Xpod USB pulse oximeter together with the Nonin 8000SM ‘soft-clip’ fingertip sensors (USB). - Remote Data Access (RDA) via BrainVision Recorder together with Brain product ExG amplifier (Ethernet).

Development

This module was created and is maintained by Nicolas Legrand and Micah Allen (ECG group, https://the-ecg.org/). If you want to contribute, feel free to contact one of the developers, open an issue or submit a pull request.
