Arrhythmia classification remains a major challenge for appropriate therapy delivery in implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). The purpose of this paper is to present a new algorithm for arrhythmia discrimination based on a statistical classification by support vector machines of a novel 2-D representation of electrograms (EGMs) named spatial(More)
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD) are widely used for sudden cardiac death prevention. In most ICD algorithms, decision making includes a morphological analysis of the unipolar and/or bipolar electrograms (EGM). The principle of such algorithms is to create a “normal” template by averaging normal sinus rhythm heartbeats, for(More)
