Abstract

In this paper, we present the assessment of heart rate variability (HRV) applied to real-time processing of electrocardiographic (ECG) signals. A general approach for R-peak detection is described based on the computational implementation of Pan and Tompkins algorithm, used in the offline version. Besides feature extraction (from temporal and frequency domain), the paper presents the development steps taken towards online real-time biosignal processing. The functional basis of the online approach consists in the implementation of a simple adaptive double-threshold algorithm for peak detection and a sliding window mechanism along acquisition that provides a dynamically generated tachogram for the features to be successively extracted, highlighting the new application opportunities for continuous observation of HRV parameters.
