Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The current role of ECG and signal monitoring in the diagnosis of Ischaemic Heart Disease is outlined in relation to imaging techniques giving accurate information on myocardial anatomy and function. ECG monitoring during stress testing remains the first step non-invasive method providing pathophysiological information. Long term continuous monitoring of the ECG and of other signals (e.g. arterial blood pressure and respiration) is commonly used to control patients with suspected or ascertained IHD. Progress of technology and of signal processing methods are driving the exploitation of signal information for diagnosis, prognosis and therapy control of ischaemic patients.
