Determination of quantitative characteristics in the morphology of complexes in an electrocardiogram. Integral method of analysis

Medical and Biological Measurements

An integral method of electrocardiogram analysis is created on the basis of a proposed energy model of heart operation according to the sequence of cardiocycle areas (S R -interval patterns). A technique is presented for measuring the coordinates of the R-wave peak and formation of interval patterns with parameters R, RR, S R and relative parameters. Comparative correlation and spectral analysis are provided for five proposed interval patterns of two groups of healthy and sick people. It is shown that an attempt to retain the bonded energy of complex morphology leads to an adequate change in complex amplitude, size of intervals and segments.
