Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This thesis has the development of a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) based on an Electro-Cardiogram (ECG) analysis system as its main theme. The system measures cardiac signals using two surface ECG leads from which individual heartbeats and pulse trends are extracted. Processed information can be presented on any Bluetooth enabled Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). The system combines several technologies, e.g. signal measuring and forming unit, DSP hard- and software and a WAP1 server with Bluetooth interface. A basis for this project was a master's thesis that investigates and implements WAP over Bluetooth (see Chapters 5 and 6). The focus of this work is hardware and software design of the ECG measurement and DSP system. The DSP software includes implementation of medical real-time algorithms for heart beat detection, average beat and pulse trend calculation. All algorithms have been implemented using the C language.
