Argus/H is a previously described computer system for the detection of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) by high speed analysis of ambulatory ECG recordings (Holter tapes). It is based on algorithms originally developed for an arrhythmia monitoring system. Detailed analysis of recorded ventricular ectopic activity (VEA) provided by Argus/H has not previously been practical because of the sheer bulk of the information. A recently implemented scheme utilizing an IBM S/360 allows for economic reduction of the beat-by-beat annotation of the Holter tape. Results demonstrating the utility of this approach are presented in three areas: 1) an investigation of the initiating PVC of a salvo; 2) the examination of more subtle parameters of VEA as responses to antiarrhythmic drug therapy; and 3) an investigation of the relation between early PVCs and the frequency of PVCs.
