Abstract

New procedures for signal processing have been developed which allow ST segment-monitoring in spite of the frequent artifacts. The procedures include detection of motion artifacts, exclusion of primary ventricular beats, and QRS-detection in noisy signals. The signal processing procedures were implemented in an ECG-monitoring system. They have been used successfully for online ST segment monitoring in 18 patients after thrombolysis and 28 patients with unstable angina pectoris.
