Abstract:

The Hewlett-Packard HP 78220 Arrhythmia Monitoring System is ventricular-oriented and detects the most significant ventricular contractions PVCs of Lead II electrocardiograms ECGs. The HP monitoring software consists of a number of relocatable program modules. The program modules are divided into three main categories. The first is called system initialization, the second is real time processing, and the third is background processing. The real time portion includes the AZTEC transformation which is applied to the input waveform and records only the changes in the waveform that succeed some predetermined threshold to achieve a tremendous data reduction.
