Abstract

This article relates generally to the processing of electrocardiograms (EKCs) and more particularly to a method and apparatus for analyzing 24-hour Holter tapes for abnormal heartbeats. A speed improvement in data compression of the EKG signal can be obtained by using one or two microcomputers in combination with logic. Basically, the microprocessor is used for arithmetic computations.
