AYALA, Ricardo et al. Electrocardiographic patterns of a humpback whale through image and signal handling. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2005, vol.12, n.4, pp. 167-176. ISSN 0120-5633.
In a conjunct study with the Whale Heart Satellite Tracking (WHST) directed by Dr. Jorge Reynolds Pombo in Colombia, the study of the behavior and description of the whale's heart in a non-invasive way from the electrical point of view is posed. The objective of this work is to realize the processing, characterization and analysis of the different electrocardiographic records of the humpback whale, in a comparative environment with the human heart for the attainment of an electrocardiographic pattern through image and signal treatment, using the transformed wavelet as the principal tool.
