ECG waveform generator for Matlab/Octave

ECGwaveGen generates a synthesized ECG signal with user-settable heart rate, signal duration, sampling frequency, QRS amplitude and duration, and T-wave amplitude; it uses QRSpulse to create premature beats followed by compensatory pauses.

Is the normal heart rate chaotic?

George Moody

In its June 2008 issue, the editors of Chaos announced a new feature, "Controversial Topics in Nonlinear Dynamics". The first controversial topic to be aired is "Is the Normal Heart Rate Chaotic?". This project provides data to explore this question.
