Abstract

This paper shows that the grammar formalism can be pushed to be applied for the description and the classification of electrocardiograms signals (ECG). We will describe an ECG signal as a sequence of tokens based on specific vocabularies and a set of grammatical rules. QRS complexes, RR distances, PR and QT intervals will be calculated. This type of work is intended for medical diagnosis assistance of an ECG signal.
