This program has a learning capacity and the ability to sort QRS complexes into any of nine families dependent on QRS morphology. Upon the detection of a QRS complex, the computer presents a rhythm strip to the system operator who must determine into which family the complex best fits. This action redefines the parameter units for that family and progressively reduces operator-computer interactions. The advantage of this type of analysis is the ability to recognize morphologies existing within the tape rather than allowing complexes to be sorted into predefined catch-all classifications. This program has been successful in the detection of PVC'S, PAC's, couplets, salvos, fusion beats, and multi-focal PVC's.
