Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An exercise ECG analysis program was developed over 15 years on a number of mainframes, minicomputers and, most recently, microcomputer-based systems. It has been rehosted into both Motorola MC68000 and Intel 80286 microprocessor-based development systems and is currently used with a removable 200 Mbyte optical disk (Write-Once-Read-Many, WORM) based data-logger system that can record and store all 12 leads simultaneously and continuously for an entire exercise test (up to 38 minutes). Data is acquired with 12-bit A/D resolution at 500 samples/sec. All ECG data and patient information are archived on the optical disk for later off-line recall and analysis on a PC or real-time replay through a D/A converter. Recorded ECG signals are at patient levels so they can be replayed through the patient cable box on any commercial system. Current development includes both simultaneous on-line processing and storage of 12-lead ECG data and off-line processing and development performed on the long-term, continuous ECG data being archived on optical disk. Patient medical histories and clinical information are separately entered into an applications database, where ECG measures and test results are later included. This new optical disk based exercise ECG database contains more than 600 complete exercise tests and is projected to increase to nearly 3,000 within 2 years.
