This database contains reference P-wave annotations for twelve signals from the MIT-BIH Arrhythmia Database.
The annotations were made by two experts. The first of them made the manual annotations, and the second one checked them. Unclear parts of the records were consulted by both. The free software tool SignalPlant was used to mark the P-waves.
The annotators process and analyze ECG professionally, and have been analyzing Holter ECG for more than 5 years. Both of them have Master's degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Bioinformatics from Brno University of Technology.
The signals were chosen because they include pathologies which make the detection of the p-waves more difficult. These annotations may be used to evaluate algorithms, however there is no guarantee that all present p-waves are labelled, or that all labels are correct.
Annotation files are provided in standard WFDB format. They can be read using the
rdann function of the WFDB Software Package.
