Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

An evaluation was carried out of the clinical benefit of changing ecg criteria in the computerized Hewlett-Packard ecg Interpretive Program. ECG Criteria Language (ECL) is a high level language designed for writing ecg criteria. The results show that significant improvements in agreement between computer and overreading physician can be achieved through the use of ECL. The major benefits came from changes in morphologic (wave shape) criteria and from changes in the severity level assigned to each diagnostic statement. Agreement on rhythm diagnoses occurred in 93% of the ECGs and was not the limiting factor in overall agreement between computer and overreading physician.
