Abstract:

Study and analysis of multiple recording electrograms in experimental models requires dedicated software for their processing. This software must be quick and efficient in manipulating the enormous amounts of recorded data. Furthermore, the software has to be easily extensible in order to introduce new work methods and analysis algorithms adapted to the needs of each research group. This has led us to develop a modular software package in which introduction of new functionalities will not require the development of a new program, resulting in considerable time savings. For development we chose MATLAB, an interactive program with high computing capabilities and powerful tools for graphic visualization. Being a standard platform, developed code can be easily modified and the functionality of any module can be optimized andor altered at any time, allowing implementation of the latest scientific advances. This software has been conceived for many applications, although in this paper we focus our experience on the study of fibrillatory processes in experimental models where up to 256 electrograms have been recorded using a cardiac electrical system.
