Automatic Detection of Conducted Premature Atrial Contractions to Predict Atrial Fibrillation in Patients after Cardiac Surgery

A method was developed to automatically detect conducted Premature Atrial Contractions (PACs) from the ECG signal. The method consisted of identifying the R waves of the ECG signal, determining the irregular beats that correspond to premature beats and dissociating atrial and ventricular premature beats. The method was developed using the ECG signals from… CONTINUE READING
