Data Pre-Processor

Description

A helper function to assist in pre-processing the user-supplied input data for use with other functions. Typically, this function will process the data and be stored as another dataframe. This function ensures that the supplied data complies with every function within the bp package. See Vignette for further details.

Usage

process_data(
  data,
  sbp = NULL,
  dbp = NULL,
  bp_datetime = NULL,
  id = NULL,
  wake = NULL,
  visit = NULL,
  hr = NULL,
  pp = NULL,
  map = NULL,
  rpp = NULL,
  DoW = NULL,
  ToD_int = NULL,
  sbp_stages_alt = NULL,
  dbp_stages_alt = NULL
)

Arguments

data

User-supplied dataset containing blood pressure data. Must contain data for Systolic blood pressure and Diastolic blood pressure at a minimum.

sbp

Required column name (character string) corresponding to Systolic Blood Pressure (mmHg)

dbp

Required column name (character string) corresponding to Diastolic Blood Pressure (mmHg)

bp_datetime

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Date/Time, but HIGHLY recommended to supply if available.

id

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to subject ID. Typically needed for data corresponding to more than one subject. For one-subject datasets, ID will default to 1 (if ID column not found in dataset)

wake

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to sleep status. A WAKE value of 1 indicates that the subject is awake and 0 implies asleep.

visit

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Visit number

hr

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Heart Rate (bpm)

pp

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Pulse Pressure (SBP - DBP). If not supplied, it will be calculated automatically.

map

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Mean Arterial Pressure

rpp

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to Rate Pulse Pressure (SBP * HR). If not supplied, but HR column available, then RPP will be calculated automatically.

DoW

Optional column name (character string) corresponding to the Day of the Week. If not supplied, but DATE or DATE_TIME columns available, then DoW will be created automatically. DoW values must be abbreviated as such c("Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat")

ToD_int

Optional vector that overrides the default interval for the Time-of-Day periods. By default, the Morning, Afternoon, Evening, and Night periods are set at 6, 12, 18, 0 respectively, where 0 corresponds to the 24th hour of the day (i.e. Midnight). By inputting a vector for the ToD_int function argument, the default period can be re-arranged accordingly. For example, ToD_int = c(5, 13, 18, 23) would correspond to a period for Morning starting at 5:00 (until 13:00), Afternoon starting at 13:00 (until 18:00), Evening starting at 18:00 (until 23:00), and Night starting at 23:00 (until 5:00)

sbp_stages_alt

(Optional) Determines the lower and upper limits for each stage of systolic blood pressure (SBP). If supplied, the input must be a vector containing 7 integers that correspond to the limits of each stage. The default vector would be given by c(80, 100, 120, 130, 140, 180, 200) where:

  • Low - default: < 100 (specifically 80 - 100)

  • Normal - default: 100 - 120

  • Elevated - default: 120 - 130

  • Stage 1 - default: 130 - 140

  • Stage 2 - default: 140 - 180

  • Crisis - default: > 180 (specifically 180 - 200)

dbp_stages_alt

(Optional) Determines the lower and upper limits for each stage of diastolic blood pressure (DBP). If supplied, the input must be a vector containing 7 integers that correspond to the limits of each stage. The default vector would be given by c(25, 60, 80, 85, 90, 120, 140) where:

  • Low - default: < 60 (specifically 25 - 60)

  • Normal - default: 60 - 80

  • Elevated - default: 80 - 85

  • Stage 1 - default: 85 - 90

  • Stage 2 - default: 90 - 120

  • Crisis - default: > 120 (specifically 120 - 140)

Value

A processed dataframe object that cooperates with every other function within the bp package - all column names and formats comply.

Examples

# Load hypnos_data
data("hypnos_data")

# Process data for hypnos_data
hyp_proc <- process_data(hypnos_data, sbp = "SYST", dbp = "DIAST", bp_datetime = "date.time",
id = "id", wake = "wake", visit = "visit", hr = "hr", pp ="pp", map = "map", rpp = "rpp")

hyp_proc

# Load bp_jhs data
data("bp_jhs")

# Process data for bp_jhs
jhs_proc <- process_data(bp_jhs, sbp = "Sys.mmHg.", dbp = "Dias.mmHg.", bp_datetime = "DateTime",
hr = "Pulse.bpm.")
