Executive Summary

This paper presents an individual identification system using single lead ElectroCardioGram (ECG). The proposed techniques for P and T wave delineation are based on time derivative and adaptive thresholding. The performance of proposed delineators is evaluated on manually annotated Physionet QT database. The accuracy of delineators are quantified on mean error and standard deviation of differences between manually annotations and automated results. Especially, lower values of error in standard deviation for onset and offset of P wave fiducials are obtained as 8.1 and 6.29 while for T wave fiducials are 9.4 and 11.2 (where units are in ms). It shows the performance of P and T wave delineators is optimum and also stable in comparison to other published results.
