Computer programs for automatic analysis of the P-QRS-T complex of electrocardiograms have been developed. Orthogonal 3-lead records are recorded on magnetic tape using FM channels. Previously it had been shown that such records contain the same clinical information used in 12-lead analysis. Tracings are then converted automatically into numerical form to become acceptable to digital computers. More than 3,000 records have been processed.
Computer analysis requires first a wave recognition program, i.e., the computer has to be instructed how to recognize beginning and end of waves. This program has been successfully tested, and agreement between computed and visual time measurements
