Abstract

A microprocessor-based cardiac arrhythmia monitor/recorder was designed to detect and document arrhythmias that occur during general anesthesia. A Holter tape recorder controlled by the monitor records arrhythmias and associated annotation. These condensed records are later manually scanned for final classification. The project was undertaken to build a database of arrhythmias correlated with various inhalation anesthetic agents, while simultaneously evaluating real-time rhythm analysis algorithms.
