assisted identification of electrical conduction patterns in atrial fibrillation conditions

Project Details


Atrial fibrillation (af) is a supraventricular arrhythmia characterized by chaotic and uncoordinated activation and contraction of the atrium. af may be due to several cardiac causes, recent studies have been able to demonstrate a higher probability of cardiac arrhythmias after exposure to air pollutants, concluding that air pollution is an acute "trigger" of af (link et al. 2013). this arrhythmia affects about 3% of the world population over 20 years of age, with high prevalence in older adults (kirchhof et al., 2016). although af is not a life-threatening arrhythmia, it is associated with limitations in the functional capacity of patients due to atrial dysfunction and the occurrence of cerebrovascular events due to the formation of thrombi in the atrium.


Develop a computational method for the identification of patterns of electrical conduction in atrial fibrillation from the processing of cardiac electrograms.
