Respiratory Rate Estimation Algorithms

This repository contains algorithms for estimation of respiratory rate from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram. It is compatible with several publicly available datasets. Together, the algorithms and datasets provide tools to assist researchers in the development and evaluation of their own RR algorithms for estimation of RR from physiological signals.

User Manual

The accompanying Wiki acts as a user manual for the algorithms presented in this repository.


The algorithms presented in this repository have been used in several studies, with each version of algorithms corresponding to a different publication. A helpful starting point would be to try to replicate the results presented in this tutorial.

Further Resources

For those interested in estimating respiratory rate from physiological signals, the wider Respiratory Rate Estimation project, of which this is a part, will be of interest. It also contains additional material such as data to use with the algorithms, publications arising from the project, and details of how to contribute.
