Analysis of changes in the beat-to-beat P-wave morphology using clustering techniques
Several pathologies related to the atrial electrical activity can be detected in the electrocardiogram P-wave. A study on the beat-to-beat P-wave morphology changes of 89 ECG signals is performed in this article. An algorithm based on the embedding space techniques has been used to extract the P-wave information of the ECG. The P-waves obtained in several of these ECGs exhibit intermittent morphology changes. The morphologies have been classified by using the K-means clustering algorithm. The mechanism behind different P-wave morphologies and its possible pathophysiological importance remains to be clarified.
