Résumé : An on line dysrhythmia monitoring system which uses simultaneously peripheral and intra auricular loads has been developed. Preprocessing hardware converts the ECG signals to pulses related to the P and QRS waves. The pulses are transmitted to and processed by the computer using a program which studies pulse chronological features. Important informations on the basic rhythm and on differential diagnosis of the APC and VPC are displayed in the unit at request. Interactive procedures have been designed to provide great flexibility. The acceptance of the computer system by the clinical staff is discussed and assessment of the routine use is reported.
