New annotations for the Long-Term AF Database
July 23, 2012
A complete set of over 9 million reference beat and rhythm annotations for the Long-Term AF Database has been contributed by MEDICALgorithmics (Warsaw, Poland). The Long-Term AF Database, a collection of 84 long-term ECG recordings (typically 24 to 25 hours each) of subjects with paroxysmal or sustained atrial fibrillation, was contributed to PhysioBank in 2008 by Steven Swiryn and his colleagues at Northwestern University. Michael Tadeusiak of MEDICALgorithmics coordinated the annotation development as a PhysioNetWorks project.
