Real-time Heart Monitoring and ECG

Signal Processing


Arrhythmias are irregular heartbeats caused by faulty electrical signals in the heart. The types of arrhythmias include premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), and three or more consecutive PVCs indicates ventricular tachycardia (VT), a potentially life-threatening condition.

This capstone project involves software development for a heart monitoring system. The proposed system is able to detect PVCs in real time and transmit a wireless message to a patient's physician in the event of ventricular tachycardia.
