Early afterdepolarizations (EAD's) are irregularities of the cardiac action potential that interrupt or retard repolarization. EAD's have been linked to the development of specific types of cardiac arrhythmias, however, the mechanism underlying the development of these arrhythmias remains unclear. The authors implemented a two-element kinetic model of the ventricular action potential to investigate a potentially arrhythmogenic form of triggered activity. ...

Maximizing the efficiency of antitachycardia devices (ATDs) requires minimizing their computational complexity. Reduction of the sampling rate of intracardiac signals favorably impacts ATD power and storage constraints as long as accurate arrhythmia detection is maintained. This study determined the upper and lower limits of acceptable bandpass filtering for an established morphometric method of intraventricular arrhythmia classification: correlation waveform analysis (CWA). ...

The proper analysis and characterization of atrial fibrillation (AF) from surface ECG recordings requires cancelling out ventricular activity (VA), i. e. the QRST complexes. For single-lead ECGs, averaged beat subtraction (ABS) technique is the most widely used. However, this method is very sensitive to QRST wave variations. To date, several strategies have been proposed to overcome this problem, but an ...

  • Understanding Atrial Fibrillation:The Signal Processing Contribution

    The book presents recent advances in signal processing techniques for modeling, analysis, and understanding of the heart's electrical activity during atrial fibrillation. This arrhythmia is the most commonly encountered in clinical practice and its complex and metamorphic nature represents a challenging problem for clinicians, engineers, and scientists. Research on atrial fibrillation has stimulated the development of a wide range of signal processing tools to better understand the mechanisms ruling its initiation, maintenance, and termination. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers and practicing engineers, with an overview of techniques, including time domain techniques for atrial wave extraction, time- frequency analysis for exploring wave dynamics, and nonlinear techniques to characterize the ventricular response and the organization of atrial activity. The book includes an introductory chapter about atrial fibrillation and its mechanisms, t eatment, and management. The successive chapters are dedicated to the analysis of atrial signals recorded on the body surface and to the quantification of ventricular response. The rest of the book explores techniques to characterize endo- and epicardial recordings and to model atrial conduction. Under the appearance of being a monothematic book on atrial fibrillation, the reader will not only recognize common problems of biomedical signal processing but also discover that analysis of atrial fibrillation is a unique challenge for developing and testing novel signal processing tools.
