As electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are generally sampled with a frequency of over 200 Hz, a method to compress diagnostic information without losing data is required to store and transmit them efficiently on a wireless personal area network (WPAN). In this paper, an ECG signal compression method for communications on WPAN, which uses feature points based on curvature, is proposed. The feature points of P, Q, R, S, and T waves, which are critical components of the ECG signal, have large… CONTINUE READING
