  1. In the present study, the binary pattern analysis is reduced to detect only those patterns which belong to the RSA pattern classes listed in this table. The strict condition is somewhat undermined by allowing a one-bit or two-bit pattern deviation (pattern tolerance τ) from the binary patterns listed, i.e. all but one bit or two bits, respectively, of the pattern under consideration must coincide with the bits of a pattern in one of the pattern classes. This makes the algorithm more flexible as asymmetrical breathing patterns are also taken into consideration. PLR : assigned phase locking ratio; μ m (τ): size of the pattern class with respect to τ (underlined values: tolerance chosen in this study); 2m: number of possible m-bit combinations; basic pattern and its complement: (smallest) representatives of the pattern class. In the heartbeat table (Table 1) complementary patterns are indicated by negative class numbers.
