Although implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have improved significantly in the past decades, the algorithms used in the identification of life-threatening arrhythmias are still not accurate enough. Conventional methods commonly misclassify tachycardias, sometimes initiating an unnecessary and uncomfortable treatment. In this paper, we proposed a new method for the identification of ventricular tachycardias and fibrillations based on the comparison of simultaneous electro-grams. Our method could successfully separate supraventricular tachycardias and normal sinus rhythm, which do not require any treatment, from ventricular tachycardias and fibrillation, which are life-threatening arrhythmias and must be terminated, with a sensitivity of 93.0% and a specificity of 92.7% from the comparison of ventricular electrograms. In future studies, the classification using electrograms from the right heart must be improved.
