Presents an automatic analysis method of the P-wave, based on lead II of a 12 lead standard ECG, which will be applied to the detection of patients prone to atrial fibrillation (AF), one of the most frequent arrhythmias. It focuses first on the segmentation of the electrocardiogram P-wave, which is performed in two steps: first, detection of the QRS complexes, then association of a wavelet analysis method and a bidden Markov model to represent one beat of the signal. After segmentation, the P-wave is isolated and a set of parameters, which have the ability to detect patients prone to AF, is calculated from it. The detection efficiency is validated on an ECG database of 145 patients including a control group and a study group with documented AF. A discriminant analysis is applied and the results obtained show a specificity and a sensitivity between 65% and 70%.
