The Basis of ECG Diagnosis

The Basis of ECG Diagnosis

(p.320) Chapter 19 The Basis of ECG Diagnosis

Jaakko Malmivuo

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the forward problem of ECG diagnosis. This leads to the solution of the inverse problem through the empirical approach. The empirical approach is acceptable in this case, because the purpose of this chapter is to be illustrative only. The main applications of the ECG to cardiological diagnosis include, among other things, the electric axis of the heart, heart rate monitoring, disorders in the activation sequence, an increase in wall thickness or size of the atria and ventricles, and arrhythmias. This chapter discusses most of the application areas of ECG diagnosis.

Keywords:   ECG diagnosis, inverse problem, empirical approach, cardiological diagnosis, heart rate monitoring, arrhythmias
