Abstract

This report describes an instrument which will automatically predict the occurrence of the P–R interval on a beat‐to‐beat basis. Tests have demonstrated an almost perfect accuracy in older subjects whose beat‐to‐beat variations are small. The average accuracy with a group of 23 men, 19 of whom were 20‐30 years old, was 95% correct prediction. In young women with very large beat‐to‐beat variations, the average accuracy achieved was 75% correct prediction.
