Improvement of the Detection of the QRS Complex, T and P Waves in an Electrocardiogram Signal using 12 Leads versus 2 Leads

Abstract

The electrical field potential of the heart recorded from the thoracic part of the human body is depicted by the electrocardiogram signal. This last one is complex and depends on many factors: Position of heart, thickness of the body skin, surface electrode conductivity, acquisition noise and many others. In clinical use, the ECG signal is analysed using twelve leads but in many works in the literature, the analysis methods of the ECG is based on two leads. We present a new method to delineate QRS complexes and T and P waves from electrocardiogram signal. It is based on the continuous wavelet transform. The method is applied on several leads, recorded simultaneously, to improve the localization of the detection. Indeed, if a delineation method is applied on only one lead with some disturbances in it, the result of the delineation could be affected. As the method proposed here merges the result of several leads, the delineation is less affected by disturbances on few leads. The results from this method and from a doctor in medicine are compared. That shows the good ability to separate waves and the enhancement of delineation accuracy when several leads are used.
