Abstract

Current RR time series simulations are distinguishable from real data by automatic algorithms. We hypothesised that RR time series simulations could be improved by using time series data from naturally occurring phenomena. 20 records of annual river flow data for the river Tyne in north eastern England were obtained. Each river flow data record was used to generate a single 24 h simulated RR time series with the property of self similarity. We compared the standard frequency parameters ULF, VLF, LF and HF normalised to the total power, for the simulated RR, with those from physiological data from 20 subjects. The river flow data produced realistic simulations of RR time series with significant differences between physiological and simulated series for VLF only. Time series data from river flow or other naturally occurring phenomena may provide useful components in producing RR time series with more realistic characteristics than current artificially generated data
