Continuous automatic analysis of the ECG with the aid of a computer with cardiosignal input directly from the patient. 1. Isolation of the active signal of the ECG, identification and measurement of its elements

E Sh KhalfenS I Nazarov


Because when fed to an on-line computer the ECG information carries a good deal of noise, of prime importance is devising a method for representation and filtration of the useful asignal. It is shown that in order to separate the ueful signal with a protracted direct ECG input from the patient to a computer the use of the proposed modified method of coherent accumulation is advisable. This modification envisages a step-wise solution of the following problems: current diagnosis of arrhythmic contractions exclusion of arrhythmic contractions from the accumulation procedure, automatic search of the normal duration of the RR intervals, equalization of the RRh intervals duration, statistical averaging of the obtained quantum values. The devised modification of the coherent accumulation method, while considerably increasing the noise-immunity of the algorhythm, enables it to effect a direct long-term automatic analysis of the ECG at intensive care units. The identification and measurement of the ECG waves and intervals are done through and automatic selection of the curve elements search zones, finding local maxima and also of the commencement and end of waves by using the method of the "moving window" with an adaptive evaluation of ...Continue Reading

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
