A new microcomputer-based ECG analysis system

, : A new microcomputer-based ECG analysis system. Clinical Cardiology 6(9): 447-455

A new automated ECG system using advances in microprocessor technology and computerized electrocardiography is described. This microcomputer-based system is self-contained and mobile. It acquires both the 12-lead and orthogonal lead (Frank) electrocardiograms and analyzes the latter within minutes. Software includes the program developed in the Veterans Administration which uses advanced statistical classification techniques and a large well-documented patient data base. Diagnostic probabilities are computed using a Bayesian approach. Diagnostic performance has been tested using independent clinical criteria and found to be quite accurate. This system enables the clinician to immediately review the computer's identifications, measurements, and diagnostic classifications and quickly use these results in clinical decision making. Serial comparisons are readily made since all previous recordings are stored on floppy diskettes. The use of microprocessors in this system makes it economically feasible for practicing physicians.

Objective: Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) recorded from the thalamus have a slow component and high frequency (similar to 1000 Hz) oscillations (HFOs). In this study, we examined how lesions in the sensory afferent pathway affect these com...

Spike potential activity was mon...

The impact of gender on the presenting characteristics, management, and outcomes in infective endocarditis (IE) has not been adequately studied. The goal of our study was to better understand differences in management and outcome of IE between ge...
