Abstract:  In this paper we present the use of the Continuous Wavelet Transform and the subsequent energy distribution derived from the transform of Electrocardiogram (ECG) signals to analyse atrial electrical activity. The atrium produces a low amplitude wave in the ECG, which can often be overwhelmed by noise making it difficult to analyse by eye and therefore limiting the P wave as an indicator in cardiological diagnosis.
