Abstract

Inappropriate classification of Supraventricular Tachycardias with 1:1 atriovetricular conduction is a mayor issue in dual-chamber implantable cardioverter defribillators. In order to distinguish Supraventricular from Ventricular Tachycardias a new methodology is proposed. The tachyarrhythmia episodes ECGs are characterized into feature vectors, which are then classified using a Support Vector Machine. The best features of the vectors are selected by means of several Feature Selection methods. The performance of the algorithm over-comes existing algorithms for implantable devices.
