It is proposed to model the derivative of electrocardiogram (ECG) signal, which we refer to as dECG, instead of the ECG signal. It is shown that the QRS complex in the dECG signal can be represented in the frequency domain by an all-pole model of appropriate order, the coefficients of the model being determined using the covariance method of linear prediction applied over an analysis interval that includes the QRS complex and that is centered about the R-peak. Modeling of dECG, instead of ECG, gives a better spectral representation of the QRS complex.
