TOWARDS WEARABLE AND CONTINUOUS 12-LEAD ELECTROCARDIOGRAM MONITORING - Synthesis of the 12-lead Electrocardiogram using 3 Wireless Single-lead Sensors

C. P. Figueiredo, P. M. Mendes

Abstract

Wearable health monitoring systems have emerged in the last decade as innovative means for patient observation and healthcare delivery. Among the physiological signals which can be measured using such systems, the 12-lead electrocardiogram is arguably the most important. However, continuous monitoring of the standard 12 lead electrocardiogram is impractical and unattractive for a wearable system, due to the obtrusiveness and discomfort that the placement and connection of 10 electrodes would cause. In this regard, the use of reduced lead sets for the synthesis of the 12-lead electrocardiogram is a preferable solution. This work analyses the suitability of a wireless sensor network prototype for continuous and simultaneous monitoring of a set of 3 modified electrocardiogram leads, which can be used for synthesis of the 12-lead electrocardiogram by application of a patient-specific transformation matrix, estimated by multiple linear regression.
