Hi Salvatore,

This (very recent) paper may be of interest:

Enevoldsen J, Simpson GL, Vistisen ST. Using generalized additive
models to decompose time series and waveforms, and dissect heart–lung
interaction physiology. J Clin Monit Comput [Internet]. 2022 Jun 13
[cited 2022 Jun 13]; Available from:

The authors make use of QRS in their GAM models in R.

Not sure if it provides entirely what you are after, but perhaps
references in the paper or contacting Enevoldsen may provide useful
starting points.

Best wishes,

I am familiar with the RHRV package, but it assumes that the data already has the heartbeats as a time series. Plus, the RHRV package does not detect arrhythmias.
