Patient monitoring of cardiac electrical activity through use of electrocardiogram is an important component of care, but inconsistencies in beat to beat measurements as well as artifacts in the signal continue to cause challenges in interpretation.
By applying techniques from topological data analysis to 3-dimensional representations of cardiac electrical activity, we are able to offer an alternative means to characterize conduction disturbances in the heart in a manner that is quantifiable, stable from beat to beat, and indicative of cardiac physiology.
