Stewart Whiting, Samuel Moreland, Jason Costello, Glen Colopy, Christopher McCann
2018 arXiv   pre-print
ECG monitors are typically used to detect these events in electrical heart activity, however they are impractical for continuous long-term use.  ...  Finally we examine how cardiac abnormalities manifest in PPG signal for in- and out-of-hospital patient populations using a wearable device during standard care.  ...  For these patients, we have a once-aminute count of the zero or more PVCs detected in their ECG over that minute.  ...
