Electrocardiographic T wave peak-to-end interval (TpTe) is one parameter of T wave morphology, which contains indicators for hypoglycaemia. This paper shows the corrected TpTe (TpTec) interval as one of the inputs contributing to detect hypoglycaemia. Support vector machine (SVM) and fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) utilizing radial basis function (RBF) are used as the classification methods in this paper. By comparing with the classification systems using inputs of corrected QT interval (QTc) and heart rate only, the results indicate that the inclusion of TpTec in combination with QTc and heart rate performs better in the detection of hypoglycaemia in terms of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy.
