Can the Regression Trees Be Used to Model Relation Between ECG Leads?

Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


2nd EAI International Conference on IoT Technologies for HealthCare






Presented is a preliminary study that investigates regression trees application for the purpose of mapping relationship between three differential ECG leads and leads of the 12-lead ECG. The approach was evaluated on a single ECG measurement on which it was superior to two syntheses performed by universal and personalized linear transformations, in terms of correlation coefficients between the synthesized and measured leads. A prominent imperfection however is that the regression trees can output only a limited number of values equal to the number of leaf nodes. The paper indicates some ideas on how to overcome this deficiency.
