A machine learning approach to differentiate wide QRS tachycardia: distinguishing ventricular tachycardia from supraventricular tachycardia.

BACKGROUND: Differential diagnosis of wide QRS tachycardia (WQCT) has been a challenging issue. Published algorithms to distinguish ventricular tachycardia (VT) and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) have limited diagnostic capabilities.

METHODS: A total of 278 patients with WQCT from January 2010 to March 2022 were enrolled. The electrophysiological study confirmed SVT in 154 patients and VT in 65 ones. Two hundred nineteen WQCT 12-lead ECGs were randomly divided into development cohort (n = 165) and testing cohort (n = 54) data sets. The development cohort was split into a training group (n = 115) and an internal validation group (n = 50). Forty ECG features extracted from the 219 WQCT ECGs are fed into 9 iteratively trained ML algorithms. This novel ML algorithm was also compared with four published algorithms.

RESULTS: In the development cohort, the Gradient Boosting Machine (GBM) model displayed the maximum area under curve (AUC) (0.91, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.81-1.00). In the testing cohort, the GBM model had a higher AUC of 0.97 compared to 4 validated ECG algorithms, namely, Brugada (0.68), avR (0.62), RWPTII (0.72), and LLA algorithms (0.70). Accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, and positive predictive value of the GBM model were 0.94, 0.97, 0.90, 0.94, and 0.95, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS: A GBM ML model contributes to distinguishing SVT from VT based on surface ECG features. In addition, we were able to identify important indicators for distinguishing WQCT.
