CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTION The greatest progress to date in the use of computers for the clinical analysis of physiological data has occurred in the field of cardiology. There are several reasons for this; first of all, electrocardiogram (ECG) potentials are relatively easy to measure; secondly, the ECG is an extremely useful indicator for both screening and diagnosis. In addition, certain abnormalities of the ECG are quite well defined and can be readily identified. The ECG signal provides the following information of a human heart :
