Electrocardiography

View this topic in
Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) is a transthoracic (across the thorax or chest) interpretation of the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, as detected by electrodes attached to the outer surface of the skin and recorded by a device external to the body. (Wikipedia.org)

Supraventricular Tachycardia Classification in the 12-Lead ECG Using Atrial Waves Detection and a Clinically Based Tree Scheme

IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, 2016

Specific supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) classification using surface ECG is considered a challenging task, since the atrial electrical activity (AEA) waves, which are a crucial element for obtaining diagnosis, are frequently hidden. In this paper, we present a fully automated SVT classification method that embeds our recently developed hidden AEA detector in a clinically based tree scheme. The process begins with ...

Differential cepstrum defined on interpolated sequences

1996 8th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 1996), 1996

The paper introduces a novel definition of the differential cepstrum. It is based on the interpolation sequences in the frequency domain and exists also for the singular signals with no spectral inverse. Besides, we showed analytically and statistically that such a differential cepstrum exhibits lower cepstral aliasing when calculated with the DFT comparing to the calculation without interpolation. On average, ...

  • Online Decision Support for Controlled System Separation

    This chapter introduces the wide‐area measurement system (WAMS)‐based techniques for identification of generator grouping according to inter‐area oscillations between elementary coherent groups (ECGs). It presents measurement‐based spectral analysis method for determining 2‐cut separation boundaries and discusses its limitations on power systems because of the unavoidable drifting nature of the oscillation frequency with an electromechanical mode. The chapter explains the concept of the “Frequency‐Amplitude Curve” to characterize such frequency drifting. A phase‐locked loop‐based method is introduced for more accurate identification of generator grouping. The methods for out‐of‐step prediction are also introduced. Finally, the chapter demonstrates a WAMS‐based three‐stage scheme for online decision support of controlled system separation (CSS). The final time to take the action of CSS can be decided based on the real‐time absolute angle difference across each probable separation boundary identified from the online monitoring stage.

  • Supraventricular Tachycardia Classification in the 12-Lead ECG Using Atrial Waves Detection and a Clinically Based Tree Scheme

    Specific supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) classification using surface ECG is considered a challenging task, since the atrial electrical activity (AEA) waves, which are a crucial element for obtaining diagnosis, are frequently hidden. In this paper, we present a fully automated SVT classification method that embeds our recently developed hidden AEA detector in a clinically based tree scheme. The process begins with initial noise removal and QRS detection. Then, ventricular features are extracted. According to these features, an initial AEA-wave search window is defined and a single AEA-wave is detected. Using a synthetic Gaussian signal and a linear combination of 12-lead ECG signals, all AEA-waves are detected. In accord with the atrial and ventricular information found, classification to atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia, atrioventricular reentry tachycardia, or sinus rhythm is performed in the framework of a clinically oriented decision tree. A study was performed to evaluate the classification from 68 patients (26 were used for the classifier's design, 42 were used for its validation). Average sensitivity of 83.21% [95% confidence interval (CI): 79.33-86.49%], average specificity of 95.80% (95% CI: 94.73-96.67%), and average accuracy of 93.29% (95% CI: 92.13-94.28%) were achieved compared to the definite diagnosis. In conclusion, the presented method may serve as a valuable decision support tool, allowing accurate detection of SVTs using noninvasive means.

Besides, we showed analytically and statistically that such a differential cepstrum exhibits lower cepstral aliasing when calculated with the DFT comparing to the calculation without interpolation.

  • MDL based digital signal segmentation

    The segmentation of a signal based on a piecewise polynomial model is reexamined here in light of the recent advances in applying the MDL principle to the exponential density family. The critical case of discriminating between short segments is handled very efficiently by using the exact MDL formula for small sample size, whereas MAP or AIC methods result in drastic over- segmentation. The simulation result for ECG segmentation shows that the piecewise linear approximation obtained with the proposed method preserves well the location of the QRS complex.

  • Blood Volume Signal Analysis with Empirical Mode Decomposition

    Biomedical observations are often coupled nonlinear processes with superimposed in- tereferences and noise. The nature of the signal and noise, as well as the data acquisition method exclude the usage of classical linear techniques. Empirical mode decomposition is used to denoise a blood volume signal. The denoising performance, although evaluated only visualy, presents several desirable characteristics such as the ability to associate the physical meaning to the components of the decomposed signal.upled nonlinear processes with superimposed intereferences and noise.

The Tag consists of three parts: a thermistor, an accelerometer, and electrocardiogram electrodes. In order to make the flexible module, the substrate adopts the soft PI with two conductive layers and the active and passive components are carefully selected.

  • Prototype of a portable platform for ECG monitoring and diagnostic applications

    This paper describes the prototype for a portable system that records and analyses electrocardiography signals in real time. The purpose of the system is to monitor patients during normal activity to help physicians to diagnose the long QT syndrome and alerts the patient to prevent sudden death. The system consists of a recording system for three leads electrocardiography signals and an algorithm implemented on a board based on a low power microcontroller. The system has been tested in non-pathologic subjects showing accurate values for the heart rate and QTc factor. The algorithm has also been tested satisfactory with created signals simulating pathologic and non- pathologic cases. It was also tested with 10 patients from a standard database showing satisfactory results except for signals where any of the characteristic waves of the ECG is not present. .
