The morphological diagnosis of ECGs is a pattern recognition procedure. The way the clinician does this is not clearly elucidated. Nevertheless, several models aimed at achieving identical results by automatic means are empleyed. While in the doctor's case this is not exactly so, the computer task for ECG interpretation comprises two distinct and sequential phases: feature extraction and classification. A set of signal measurements containing information for the characterization of the waveform… CONTINUE READING
