I have been working on analyzing Electrocardiogram data.
So far, i have identified Ectopic beats and Premature Atrial/Ventricular Contraction beats. I am working on identifying Missed Beat in the Electrocardiogram.
The definition of Missed Beat is: "The characteristic of a missing beat in ECG is the unexpected absence, together, of P-, QRS-, and T-waves."
My question is, do we have to consider missed beats in presence of Ectopic or Premature beats also ?? For example, if an ECG contains premature/ectopic beats, then should the R-R interval between these beats should be compared to R-R interval between normal beats to search a missed beat ??
