Abstract:

A method for the interpretation of electrocardiographic waveforms by correlation analysis has been investigated. Both the autocorrelation function and the crosscorrelation function are employed in the analysis. The electrocardiographic signals of thirty-six patients, including normal persons and those with specific diagnosed coronary pathology, have been analyzed. Electrocardiographic signs of abnormal heart rate, rhythm, and conduction patterns may be detected by correlation methods however, the correlated wave form does not appear to be useful in determining the specific abnormality.
