A Literature Survey on Telecardiac Systems and Arrhythmia Classification

G. Kavya, Dr.V. Thulasi Bai


Telemonitoring refers to the process of monitoring the
status of a patient at a distance using the audio, video and other
telecommunications and electronic information processing
technologies. It has become a huge task with rapidly advancing
technology and rapidly changing and evolving standards of medical care and development. The main objective of this literature review is to evaluate the efficacy of telemedicine interventions for health outcomes for cardiac patients. An overview about the state of the art in research on telemedicine and telecardiac systems in an international perspective is proposed in this paper
