THRESHOLD P-WAVE DETECTION METHOD IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF ATRIAL FIBRILLATION
One of the most common and dangerous types of cardiac arrhythmias is atrial fibrillation which can cause a stroke and even lead to death, so timely diagnosis of this disease is one of the most important functions of the human health monitoring systems. Today, there are many algorithms for detection of atrial fibrillation, they are based on two main principles: the evaluation of heart rhythm irregularities and detection of P-wave on the cardiogram, and their accuracy is not greater than 94.5 %. This study presents a high sensitivity threshold method detection of the presence or absence of P-wave.
