Abstract

The problem of the performance evaluation of algorithms for the analysis of the ECG signal is still unsolved in general terms; the most generally accepted solution to this problem is the comparison with an annotated ECG database. The preliminary experiences with a digital database for evaluating algorithms of analysis of arrhythmias and ST-T changes are described. At first the database has been applied for the QRS detector evaluation.
