A Singularity-analysis Approach to characterize Epicardial Electric Potential

Abstract : The cardiac electrical activity conforms a complex sys- tem, for which nonlinear signal-processing is required to characterize it properly. In this context, an analysis in terms of singularity exponents is shown to provide compact and meaningful descriptors of the structure and dynam- ics. In particular, singularity components reconstruct the epicardial electric potential maps of human atria, inverse- mapped from surface potentials; such approach describe sinus-rhythm dynamics as well as atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation. We present several example cases in which the key descriptors in the form of fast-slow dynamics point at the arrhythmogenic areas in the atria.
