PhysioNet/CINC 2011 Simulated Data

The files sim.tar.gz and contain a pilot dataset provided for testing and development purposes (no quality information is provided in this set). Each record is at least 10 seconds long. The signals are stored in both text (CSV) and WFDB format. The records can also be downloaded individually or examined using the PhysioBank ATM. There are 39 records (labeled "ecg_x") and a Note.txt file describing each record condition (also pasted below). The signals were acquired with the following parameters:
