Abstract
The problem of analyzing heart rate

variability in the presence of ectopic beats is

revisited. Based on the IPFM model and the closely

related heart timing signal, a new technique is

introduced which corrects for the occasional presence

of such beats. The correction technique, which

involves the occurrence times of a certain number of

beats preceding the ectopic, is computationally very

efficient. Based on actual heart rate data, the results

suggest that the power spectrum, and related clinical

indices, are more accurately estimated.
