Summary Low cost pervasive electrocardiogram (ECG) monitors is changing how sinus arrhythmia are diagnosed among patients with mild symptoms. With the large amount of data generated from long-term monitoring, come new data science and analytical challenges. Although traditional rule-based detection algorithms still work on relatively short clinical quality ECG, they are not optimal for pervasive signals collected from wearable devices - they don't adapt to individual difference and assume accurate identification of ECG fiducial points. To overcome these short-comings of the rule-based methods, this paper introduces an arrhythmia detection approach for low quality pervasive ECG signals. To achieve the robustness needed, two techniques were applied. First, a set of ECG features with minimal reliance on fiducial point identification were selected. Next, the features were normalized using robust statistics to factors out baseline individual differences and clinically irrelevant temporal drift that is common in pervasive ECG. The proposed method was evaluated using pervasive ECG signals we collected, in combination with clinician validated ECG signals from Physiobank. Empirical evaluation confirms accuracy improvements of the proposed approach over the traditional clinical rules.
