The Duration of the Cycle to Get the P Amplitude on A Discrete Electrocardiogram

Sabar Setiawidayat


The P amplitude value for each cycle has not been carried out even though it is related to indications of atrial hypertrophy. The basic interpretation of the maximum P amplitude under normal conditions is 2.5 small squares on electrocardiogram (ECG) paper which is equivalent to 2.5 mV. Apart from these interpretations, an amplitude value is required that corresponds to the amount of depolarization of the atrial muscle cells. The difficulty faced by researchers is the lack of discrete ecg data available for experiments, so it only depends on amplitude data as a function of Physionet output time. An ECG is produced using discrete data but there is no electrocardiograph that displays discrete data yet. This study aims to obtain the P amplitude value based on discrete electrocardiogram data. The cycle duration value obtained from R to R is used to obtain the initial position of the cycle (sc) with the formula RN+1-1.5dR for each cycle. The P amplitude value can be obtained by filtering the maximum amplitude value between the sc and RN positions. The results of research on 10 physionet samples and 10 RSSA samples showed that all samples had an amplitude R, cycle duration and P amplitude value in each cycle.
