Photoplethysmography (PPG) provides cheap, simple access to pulsatile intervals which correspond to heart beats. However, it often provides a signal which is significantly degraded,and requires cleaning. Manual correction is time consuming, automated correction often fails to deal with unusual features within the signal. This paper briefly presents a simple method of template matching PPG-derived heart beats for use in heart rate variability analyses.
