We introduce #GAMs as a tool for analysing medical monitoring data. We also present the idea that GAMs can be used to decompose a medical waveform into individual, physiologically relevant, components.
Example 1: Pulse pressure ("the strength of a heart beat") varies with ventilation (mechanical). We can use a cyclic spline to represent the repeating effect of ventilation on pulse pressure.
