I hav jus now started with my post graduate project which involves the extraction of r peaks in ecg waveform in the first phase of detecting cardiac abnormalities.The ieee paper that i referred for this project mentioned the use of LABVIEW as the main software module.It wud really help a lot if i cud know how to use the NI BIOMEDICAL KIT 3.0 for this purpose.I hav attached the reference paper with this message.
I think it will be better for you to use standart LabVIEW for your task, there are a lot of different algorithms of QRS-detecton that you can realize in a shot period of time this LabVIEW. Are you going to devepol software only? http://www.physionet.org/ here you can find data base of ECG signals with annotatons, and some information for you.
The Biomedical Startup Kit implements some algorithm for QRS Complex, P and T wave detection. You could find the how-to in How to use NI Biomedical Startup Kit 2.0 - ECG Feature Extractor. You could download the executable version in http://decibel.ni.com/content/groups/ni-labs. If you want to get the source code for your own modffication, you could shoot an email to [Edit: email removed as it is no longer used for support*]
BTW, in the source code version, it is very easy to load the data from the files downloaded on http://www.physionet.org.

hi!!Thank u for the quick response......i have visited the site mentioned by u but cud not get it in the format that cud be loaded in LABVIEW.Pl do tell me about the conversion of files in LABVIEW compatible format.i will hav to detect the r peaks from the waveform extracted from database as the first phase and detect any cardiac abnormalities using DAUBECHIES WAVELET transform.pl guide me in using LABVIEW for this.As of now v r more concerned about the software implementation of it.the hardware imlementation is to be taken up later.
http://www.physionet.org/physiotools/matlab/#wfdb - here you can find some information about transform data.
One of the easy ways - convert signals to TXT, and than use its in LabVIEW, but in this case time of the signal processing increase.
