In response to Gloria Cosoli's question - Thanks for your interest in the algorithms. Yes, see the Wiki for more details of extracting HRV signals (also known as 'Frequency Modulation' signals - https://github.com/peterhcharlton/RRest/wiki/Respiratory-Signal-Extraction#feature-measurement ), and this article: "Extraction of respiratory signals from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram: technical and physiological determinants" ( https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6579/aa670e ).
Is it possible to use these algorithms for the estimation of respiration rate from interbeat intervals series (HRV signals)?
The Polar Sensor Logger logs R-R interval data from the Polar H10 chest strap, and P-P-interval data from the Polar OH1 optical heart rate sensor. There are publications (Milind Y Desai et. al. Saeid Nahavandi, et. al.) which demonstrate, that the accuracy of these sensors are close to ECG devices. Polar H10 chest strap is not so comfortable to wear 24*7, in contrast to the Polar OH1. But can the P-P-interval data from the Polar OH1 be used for respiratory rate estimation, and are the P-P-interval data accurate enough for this purpose?
There is new option to get ECG peaks for Respiratory Rate Estimation from a Polar OH1 optical heart rate sensor, which has ECG accuracy, and is very comfortable to wear. There is one project available which used the Polar SDK, but unfortunately, it only runs on Android:
But the Polar OH1 can also be used with the Adafruit Pyloton Open Sourch Bike Computer:
The Adafruit support suggested to modify the library of the Pyloton to intercept the data stream:
This project needs some coding, but the Polar OH1 is much more handy than an ECG device.
I suppose also the Polar OH1 Bluetooth Low Energy optical heart rate sensor should work for Respiratory Rate Estimation:
Scott Harden DIY ECG with AD8232 and Sound Card could eventually serve as a low-cost device for Respiratory Rate Estimation:
Respiratory rate is difficult to measure therefore respiratory rate estimation is wonderful.
I will provide an introduction to estimating respiratory rate from the ECG and PPG, including an overview of how to use this toolbox, in a webinar on 16th January.

Version 3 has now been uploaded. It accompanies the following publication:
Charlton P.H. et al. Extraction of respiratory signals from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram: technical and physiological determinants, Physiological Measurement, 38(5), pp. 669 - 690, 2017. DOI: 10.1088/1361-6579/aa670e
Further details are available at: http://peterhcharlton.github.io/RRest/factors_assessment.html
We are currently preparing a manuscript which will accompany version 3 of the algorithms. Version 3 will be uploaded once this has been published.
Hello. When will it be updated the V3 algorithm?
Thanks for the update
My apologies, this has been created in preparation for an upcoming paper publication. I intend to upload the files within the next few weeks.
