In the wearable health monitoring based on compressed sensing, atrial fibrillation detection directly from the compressed ECG can effectively reduce the time cost of data processing rather than classification after reconstruction. However, the existing methods for atrial fibrillation detection from compressed ECG did not fully benefit from the existing prior information, resulting in unsatisfactory classification performance, especially in some applications that require high compression ratio

Specifically, we design a deep network model for one-dimensional ECG signals, and the measurement matrix is used to initialize the first layer of the model so that the proposed model can obtain more prior information which benefits improving the classification performance of atrial fibrillation detection from compressed ECG. The experimental results on the MIT-BIH Atrial Fibrillation Database show that when the CR is 10%, the accuracy and F1 score of the proposed method reach 97.52% and 98.02%, respectively. Compared with the atrial fibrillation detection from original ECG, the corresponding accuracy and F1 score are only reduced by 0.88% and 0.69%. Even at a high CR of 90%, the accuracy and F1 score are still only reduced by 6.77% and 5.31%, respectively. All of the experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is superior to other existing methods for atrial fibrillation detection from compressed ECG. Therefore, the proposed method is promising for atrial fibrillation detection in wearable health monitoring based on compressed sensing.
