Reliable P wave detection is necessary for accurate and automatic electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis. Currently, methods for P wave detection in physiological conditions are well-described and efficient. However, methods for P wave detection during pathology are not generally found in the literature, or their performance is insufficient. This work introduces a novel method, based on a phasor transform, as well as innovative rules that improve P wave detection during pathology. These rules are based on the extraction of a heartbeats' morphological features and knowledge of heart manifestation during both physiological and pathological conditions. To properly evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm in pathological conditions, a standard database with a sufficient number of reference P wave positions is needed. However, such a database did not exist. Thus, ECG experts annotated 12 chosen pathological records from the MIT-BIH Arrhythmia Database. These annotations are publicly available via Physionet. The algorithm performance was also validated using physiological records from the MIT-BIH Arrhythmia and QT databases. The results for physiological signals were Se =98.42% and PP =99.98%, which is comparable to other methods. For pathological signals, the proposed method reached Se = 96.40% and PP = 85.84%, which greatly outperforms other methods. This improvement represents a huge step towards fully automated analysis systems being respected by ECG experts. These systems are necessary, particularly in the area of long-term monitoring.
